RAVEN SOLOMON is a global Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion thought leader and nationally recognized keynote speaker who helps organizations get future-ready by understanding generations, racial equity and their intersection.
Raven's mission is simple – to solve racial inequity by breaking down generational and racial barriers in the workplace and replacing them with empathy and synergy that fosters productive working relationships, drives business results, and prepares organizations to compete in the not-so-distant future.
She is the author of the 2019 release Leading Your Parents: 25 Rules to Effective Multigenerational Leadership for Millennials and Gen Z, where she shares leadership principles and practical advice for young professionals seeking to transition into leadership positions in today’s diverse workplace and the founder of the Charlotte-based Center for Next Generation Leadership and Professional Development, a startup focused on providing soft-skill development to the leaders of tomorrow.
As the valedictorian of her college graduating class and one of the youngest-ever executives in the Fortune 50 company with which she spent nearly a decade, she has shown that her approach to leading and influencing people yields results.
Raven has helped tens of thousands, from podiums around the country, close the gaps inside of dozens of industry-leading companies and create sustainable cultural change. She’s also facilitated trainings with students of world-class universities, and consulted with household brands in the areas of generational diversity & inclusion and early talent development and retention.
Raven gives audiences the safe space to grow, learn, and laugh in her engaging and powerful in-person and virtual learning experiences.
