Porter Braswell is CEO and cofounder of Jopwell. He holds a B.A in Political Science from Yale University.
Exposure to a range of career pathways is core to Jopwell’s mission. Because if you don’t understand the breadth of what is out there, how can you determine what’s right for you?
As we bookmark the end of President Barack Obama’s second term, I find myself coming back to one recurring thought that has nothing to do with politics: What an honor it has been to witness such a historic ‘first’ for our country and our community.
Growing up, I thought career success meant following three possible paths: law, finance, or medicine.
You hit on the divide and apparent disconnect in America today – the feeling that we are too often talking past those whose views differ from our own and not actually stopping to look around, listen, and understand.
Just as we’ve looked toward others who’ve “been there,” we have a responsibility to talk about our experience and share the rules of the game with other aspiring entrepreneurs.
In the same way Jopwell is helping other companies solve their diversity challenges, I want to continue being open and proactive about addressing our own.
