The Love Story of Ursula Burns, the First Black Woman CEO of a Fortune 500 Company

We’re continuing our Black Women in Excellence series with a look at the love story of Ursula Burns, the former CEO of Xerox and the first Black woman to be a CEO of a Fortune 500 company. Ursula’s success is largely due to the support of her husband, scientist Lloyd Bean. Their love story is so unique compared to what we are used to, but was beautiful nonetheless.
