Keynote Speaker

Calvin Crosslin

Lenovo, Chief Diversity Officer and President of the Lenovo Foundation​

As Lenovo’s Chief Diversity Officer with 30+ years of extensive HR experience, I’m a strategic, big-picture thinker with keen business & multicultural acumen and strong leadership development & employee empowerment skills. I thrive on leading successful large-scale, global people & organizational change initiatives that align with business objectives, transform operational competencies, and result in optimized performance & success. I’m passionate about driving Diversity & Inclusion strategies that sustain leadership accountability, inspire employee engagement, and contribute to a high-performing culture. Serving in a dual capacity as Lenovo’s Foundation President, I champion a charitable giving strategic plan with revitalized funding initiatives and strengthen our community partnerships. Senior leaders describe me as a valued advisor trusted for global business acumen, deep HR experience, and executing critical programs that result in ROI & best-in-class solutions. I believe my success lies in my ability to listen to my constituencies & stakeholders and utilize my strong coaching, collaboration, influencing & communication skills to add value and steward an inclusive workplace.

Alumni Speaker

Isaiah Samuel

Lenovo, Chief Diversity Officer and President of the Lenovo Foundation​

As the Assistant Technical Instructor at NPower North Carolina, my duties involve helping and supporting the trainees and breaking down large concepts into simpler terms. I am a former trainee so I understand the challenges the program may have, so I want to help uplift everyone in the North Carolina Raleigh region. A goal of mine as an ATI is to help everyone develop their technical skills in a professional environment and see all the trainees become Alumni.
