Carla A. Harris
Carla A. Harris, is a renowned international public speaker and award-winning author. Carla has been in the investment banking industry for more than 30 years — currently serving as a Senior Client Advisor at Morgan Stanley. She was appointed by President Barack Obama in 2013 to chair the National Women’s Business Council. In 2023, Harris was named one of the Top 50 Keynote Speakers in the World by Real Leaders Inc., Crain’s D&I Lifetime Achievement Award winner and Bookfest Award winner for “Lead to Win.” Prior to joining Morgan Stanley, Carla received an MBA, Second Year Honors from Harvard Business School and an AB in economics from Harvard University, Magna Cum Laude. She was elected to the Harvard Board of Overseers in 2017 and recently ended her six-year term.
Carla’s new book “Lead to Win” lays the pathway to becoming a powerful, impactful, and influential leader in any environment. Carla gives prescriptive solutions of how anyone can show up in any environment as a leader that can motivate and inspire employees to deliver and contribute beyond that which they thought they could contribute. In the book, Carla gives “the pearls” of intentional leadership -authenticity, building trust, creating clarity, creating other leaders, diversity, innovation, inclusivity and voice- that will help any leader to be more impactful, today and in the future. I also talk about the journey from being an individual contributor to a leader, as well as what it means to be a transformational leader or leading through a crisis, among other relevant topics.
