On Monday, June 10, hosted its second Month of the Man Twitter chat, part two in a series of lunchtime talks tailored to male leaders of color. This week’s chat focused on how young black men can get their foot in the door at Fortune 500 companies and succeed in the C-suite. Featured experts included Alfred Edmond Jr., senior vice president and editor-at-large at Black Enterprise; William Goodloe, CEO of Sponsors for Educational Opportunity (SEO); Alix Montes, account coordinator at LM&O Advertising and career columnist for Levo League; and Nkrumah Pierre,  senior manager of business development at Russell Tobin & Associates.

Each weighed in on internship opportunities, unspoken codes of conduct, and how men of color can advance up the ranks to the C-suite.

Check out this recap of tips and quips from the chat, and be sure to join us every Monday in June for our #MonthofTheMan Twitter chats tailored for power men of color around the world:
