PHOTOS: Inside ESSENCE's Black Women at Work Panel

On the tail of a ESSENCE-commissioned study, which found that Black women are likely to hide their authentic selves in the workplace, we hosted a dynamic Black Women at Work panel. Moderated by Melissa Harris-Perry and featuring Nailah Flake-Brown (Morgan Stanley), Shawn Outler (Macy's) and Wanji Walcott (American Express)—all top execs at their companies—we explored how to stay true to yourself while climbing the ranks in your industry. Take a look inside of the powerful luncheon.
