Congratulations to Bershan Shaw ‘91 for being named one of nine black women who impacted the world of business in 2020.
BlackEnterprise.com, a business, investing, and wealth-building resource for African Americans, made the selection of black women who are leading and making a difference like never before. Featured in the January article, 9 Black Women Who Impacted the World of Business in 2020 by Jessica Mosley, Bershan and her cohorts were praised as women "who showed up in the spirit of excellence and created a difference in the lives of those in their community and in the world as a whole."
According to Ms. Mosley, "Black women are now more than ever using their voices to make impact and be noticeable on all fronts."
She writes of Bershan, "She wasn’t born a warrior, she became one. After being diagnosed with stage 4 breast cancer, she became a warrior in her mind to beat the ugly disease. Dealing with years of treatment birthed her multimillion-dollar business, Warrior Training International, which she uses to coach CEOs, leaders, executive teams, and management teams on diversity & inclusion training, emotional intelligence training, and more to help companies and individuals change their mindset, help strategize the blind spots, and focus on getting what they want: success."
We are so happy that one of Bishop McNamara's own is in this distinguished group of women.
