Keynote Speaker:

DrEllaJBell Ella L.J. Edmondson Bell PhD is founder and president of ASCENT. She is an internationally recognized scholar, author, and consultant on race, gender, and social class in organizations.

In their book Our Separate Way: Black and White Women and the Struggle for Professional Identity (Harvard Business School Press), Professor Bell and Stella M. Nkomo provide an unflinching look at the formative experiences of female executives and reveal that black women have charted a unique course up the corporate ladder. Based on an eight-year research effort, this powerful book illuminates how understanding diversity in all its dimensions—including class as well as gender and race—can make the workplace a better environment for all.

Professor Bell received her BA from Mills College of Education, her master’s from Columbia University, and her PhD from Case Western Reserve University. She has held academic appointments at Yale University, the University of Massachusetts, MIT, and The University of North Carolina.
