Freeman Hrabowski – 4 Pillars of College Success in Science

MOOD: When you feel like it’s may be too tough

In his TED talk, Freeman Hrabowski recounts the story of how, at the age of 12, he convinced his parents to let him march alongside Martin Luther King Jr. Now, as the president of the University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC), it’s his mission to ensure that everyone, particularly minorities and young women, have an educational experience that equips, supports and inspires them. But don’t let the title fool you. This talk is about more than just college and science. It is also about choosing your own destiny. Hrabowski’s heart-felt advice: With a sense of self, dreams and values can make a huge difference in the world.


 

Mellody Hobson: Color blind or color brave?

MOOD: When you’re trying to build the best team

Mellody Hobson’s talk is arguably one of the best in the history of TED. The businesswoman, president of Ariel Investments and current Chair of the Board of Directors of DreamWorks Animation fearlessly and eloquently talks about race━a topic that too often boardrooms avoid discussing because it makes them ‘uncomfortable’. Her talk is packed with hard statistics on corporate America and stories of business leaders that have made their organization more competitive by embracing diversity head on. Her motivating call-to-action for you is to:

 

“Invite people into your life who don’t look like you, don’t think like you, don’t act like you, don’t come from where you come from, and you might find that they will challenge your assumptions and make you grow as a person.” – Mellody Hobson
