We can't tell you that joining 80-20 is GOOD for your career. But it is
definitely not BAD for your career. Here is one proof.
Conrado "Bobby" Gempesaw, a Filipino-Am., was named Provost of
Miami University 3 days ago. "Bobby" is currently Dean of College of
Business at the University of Delaware. Visit
Gempesaw has been an 80-20 member for years and still is.
Visit http://www.80-20initiative.net/about/membership.asp to view
his name on the membership list *.
Gampesaw is not only a dues-paying member, but also publicly acknowledges
that he got his first administrative position as an Associate Provost
at the Univ. of Delaware partially through the effort of Asian Am.
faculty members talking to the Administration that its top echelon
could benefit from diversity.
America selects leaders who have convictions, are willing to take some
risks for their convictions, and are persons of integrity. Just having
knowledge, ability and skills are not good enough to be leaders. Those
attributes normally only earns a person a high-paying job. Actually, even
the "high pay" may not be realized, if the person is deemed as timid.
