Meet Rosalind Brewer.
In January, she was named CEO of Sam’s Club. This promotion made her the first woman and first African American to lead a division of business in WalMart. She had previously worked for Walmart, working as president of East Coast operations.
It’s amazing that in these days and times, women of color only hold 3% of board seats in Fortune 500 companies. Hopefully with FAB women like Ms. Brewer breaking the proverbial glass ceilings, FAB girls of the future will have more opporutnities in business.
