As vice chairman, Global Wealth Management for Morgan Stanley, Harris has played a vital role in managing the company’s evolution in the changing business landscape. For example, the 30-year Wall Street veteran with investment experience in technology, media, retail, telecommunications, and healthcare, among other sectors, has initiated the company’s Senior Multicultural Leaders Conference as well as its Multicultural Innovation Lab. The annual conference is designed to position more women and executives of color for leadership as well as raise awareness of the challenges and opportunities in global business. As for the Innovation Lab, it has been designed to help improve the access to capital for female and multicultural founders—consider it Silicon Valley East. Deeply grounded in her faith and her lifelong love of music, Harris is a two-time author and motivational speaker who’s been sharing her “pearls” of wisdom for more than two decades. With a personal brand that is as authentic as it is audacious, Harris has a significant following, especially among women of color in business, about whom she cares deeply and to whom she gives generously.
