Philana Kiely Speaks on Business Careers for Native American students.

Philana Kiely Speaks on Business Careers for Native American students. | Shideezhi - Native North American  Girls and Women | Scoop.it

Philana Kiely came to Ira H. Hayes high school with a message for Native American students: the world is open for business.Kiely, vice president of programs and chapter development for MBA Women MBA Women promoting careers in business at Ira Hayes High School Philana Kiely, MBA, encouraging students to consider a career in business at Ira H. Hayes High School.International, presented a
slideshow detailing basic business concepts in hopes of inspiring high schoolers to seek careers in
the business world. Kiely, who is half Navajo and from Gallup, N.M., received her Masters of
Business Administration from the University of Houston and now works at a company that seeks
to empower female business professionals.

“Why would somebody go into business?” Kiely asked the group of about 30 students. “Because you can do anything with it.”In a slideshow entitled “What Do You Want for Yourself?” Kiely demonstrated the concept of supply chain economics. She asked for seven student volunteers to symbolize each link
in the chain — from research and development to manufacturing, to logistics and distribution, to
marketing, to sales, all the way to customer service. She explained how all of these departments
constantly interact to create products to sell, such as the iPhone.

“You see that in every one of these core pieces, there’s a career there,” Kiely said. “There are so
many different levels within each of these pieces, you just have to see which one fi ts for you.”
She suggested that maybe a student in the audience could design the next iPhone and talked
about the thrill of “taking all of your passions and putting them into something that could affect
millions of people.”

Ira Hayes students listened respectfully and some took the message to heart.“It got me thinking, if she
can do it then I can do it,” senior Paulette Morago said. “Someone telling me I can do it, it pushes me, telling me, ‘Yeah I can do it.’”

Sophomore Gabby Compton knows something about the challenges that face a female entrepreneur. Compton’s mother has her own embroidery and screen-printing business, a fi eld Compton is considering following her mother into. Kiely’s talk was even more motivation.“It made me want to go into business,” Compton said.

Kiely of course stressed the importance of education in reaching these goals. She encouraged students to apply to at least 10 scholarships and use their Native American heritage to their advantage. Some colleges, such as Fort Lewis College in Colorado where Kiely received her Bachelor of Business
Administration, offer tuition wavers for Native students. She also maintained that leaving to continue an education did not mean leaving her cultural tradition behind.

“It wasn’t until I took myself out, that I really understood what I had,” Kiely said. “That I had
a connection home, that I had a connection to the land, I had a connection to my family. And
so that always brought me back. That always brought me home.”Kiely said the only limits students have are the ones they place on themselves.“Don’t wait for life to happen. Either you’re going to be a passenger or you’re going to be driving it,” she said.
