      Stacey Abrams: Leading from the Minority

      Stacey Abrams, Candidate for Governor of Georgia; Former Minority Leader, Georgia House; Author, Minority Leader: How to Lead from the Outside and Make Real Change; Twitter: @staceyabrams It’s almost a cliché: it’s good to be different. However, it’s hard to believe this when there are a plethora of experiences and challenges that hinder anyone who exists beyond the structure of traditional power. But today, there are women, people of color, members of the LGBTQ community and millennials in the world who are ready to make a difference. Stacey Abrams, Former Georgia House minority leader and candidate for governor of Georgia, wants to show everyone that there is truth in the cliché and value in the struggle against traditional power structures. In her new book, Minority Leader: How to Lead from the Outside and Make Real Change, she emphasizes the importance of knowing your own passion, regardless of the scale or target. She discusses personal stories about launching a company, starting a daycare center for homeless teen moms and running a successful political campaign to show how ambition, fear, money, and failure function in leadership.  Join this special conversation about how being in the minority can provide unique and vital strength!
