AdventureCEO Leadership Insights announced today’s premiere of “Women In Leadership” featuring women from three different generations revealing the barriers they broke past to build exceptional companies. Streaming on ROKU and YouTube via the Raven International TV Network (RITV), this set of interviews delivers insights women and men can use to be more effective leaders. RITV’s founder, Raven Blair Glover, as a proud recipient of Barack Obama’s 2016 Presidents’ Lifetime Achievement Award encouraged spotlighting women’s struggles as leaders across generational lines.

  • The Baby-Boomer Generation: Told that being a woman and young were problems, she charged on to be the second-ever female Partner at the professional-services powerhouse Delloitte.
  • The Gen-X Generation: Escaping years of abuse at home as a teenager, she built a thriving business helping other overcome trauma to reclaim their live, and fundraising for Eve Ensler’s V-Day movement to end violence against women and girls.
  • The Millennial Generation: Left with crushing debt after her business partners stole her life savings, she started over with six dollars to become an award-winning entrepreneur with businesses including a Foundation serving children’s needs in Africa.

Three generations of women share their journey of overcoming unbelievable, and at times heart-breaking, circumstances to become powerful leaders. All three refused to be held back from leading the lives they knew they were meant to experience. Learning from their experiences, now they share insights for girls, women - and yes even men - to apply in their lives to lead with more purpose, passion, and impact.

In 20-minute interview segments, all three women deliver gripping soundbites and practical insights leaders from all Communities will be able to apply to their daily lives. As the second installment in the “Women In Leadership” series produced by AdventureCEO Leadership Insights, these interviews set the bar for future conversations.
