When Pamela Brylski's parents emigrated from Nigeria nearly 40 years ago, they arrived here with very little but a strong work ethic and resilience. She wasted no time making her own mark on the world.
As a White House intern 13 years ago, she helped set up programs to coach female entrepreneurs in rural areas of Africa.
After getting into finance, she became a champion of diversity in the industry, helping educate and expose other professionals to the value of having a diverse set of opinions.
“It’s great to be a part of the financial industry at a time when diversity is top of mind,” she said.
Her experiences have made her a catalyst in recruitment of other females and minorities across the industry, such as her involvement with organizations like Sponsors for Educational Opportunity.
