From “The Hood” to University Valedictorian to Corporate Executive

 

Raven Solomon is an entrepreneur, keynote inspirational speaker, and the President & Founder of the Center for Next Generation Leadership & Professional Development, a Charlotte-based training & development startup focused on providing soft skill development to the future of the workplace—Millennials & Generation Z. The Center helps corporations develop, attract and retain the two generations, while also partnering with universities to accelerate the corporate readiness of it’s students prior to graduation.  

A proud graduate of North Carolina State University, Raven earned one of the highest academic achievements possible— graduating Valedictorian of her class of over 8000 students! After NC State, she joined a Fortune 50 Company we all know and love, where she rapidly scaled the ranks, reaching the executive level at just 28 years old. During her time at PepsiCo, Raven led diverse teams of hundreds to staggering, sustainable results, but is most proud of the lasting impact left on people, evident after her departure in 2016.  

Today, Raven is on a mission to use her corporate leadership and business experience—along with her powerful personal story— to remove obstacles for young professionals and inspire communities across the world to overcome and thrive! Much of Raven’s work as a speaker serves students, young professionals and emerging leaders in schools, communities, and companies.
