Black business leaders strive to help boost African American presence in corporate America

NASHVILLE, TN (WSMV) – When it comes to excelling, Rasheeda Liberty has always been a go-getter. She’s currently the head of Finance and Global Business Services Talent Acquisition at Amazon.

“I’ll just back all the way up and decided to make the decision that I was going to be an accounting major that was rare for individuals that looked like me,” Liberty said.

That small number didn’t stop when she reached corporate America.

“Coming into corporate America, I worked in several Fortune 100 companies and honestly that climb and that environment never really shifted,” Liberty said.
