Diversity Fireside Chat
Investment bankers focus on capital markets, but Erika Irish Brown took on additional responsibilities when she worked on Wall Street. “I always had a second job, which was diversity and inclusion,” she said Feb. 27, 2017, during the fourth annual Diversity Fireside Chat at the University of Maryland’s Robert H. Smith School of Business.
