The Broad Experience 23: Tips for success from a CEO

I'm starting a series called Tips for Success, and this first episode features a candid conversation with Monique Nelson, CEO of UniWorld Group, a multicultural advertising and marketing agency based in Brooklyn, NY. Most CEOs are white and male. Monique is neither.

In the interview Monique talks about:

Making mistakes - lots of them - to learn and get ahead
The advantages of being on more of a 'jungle jim' career track than the traditional ladder
Speaking up for yourself at the office
The importance of mentorship and sponsorship
The part race plays in her everyday life and work
