Cora Daniels on Charlie Rose

In conjunction with her cover story in the August Diversity 2005 issue of Fortune Magazine on African American men who broke the color barrier in the 50s and 60s, Cora Daniels — appearing on Charlie Rose with James Ward, formerly of Marriott and Darwin Davis, formerly of equitable — called out her host on his question of whether or not race is still an issue in the corporate America today. Cora has been covering diversity in business for a few years now, I’ve spoken to her on the phone many times but never met her in person so it was nice to see the face behind the voice. Here’s what she said:

“Just because it’s 2005 vs.. 1966 doesn’t mean the struggle’s still not there. The nuances are a little different, but one of the things I thought when I was interviewing all these guys — I’m definitely coming from a different generation but some of the experiences sounded so familiar. The isolation of being a black professional working in a predominately white world is still there.”

If you think Cora would be a good guest for my On the Record…Online podcast, please let me know.
