Sex Matters:
Honoring the Challenges and Opportunities of the Erotic

Conversations sex tend to get stuck at the level of good/bad, right/wrong, taboo/titillation. We are long overdue for an approach to sex that celebrates it as a space of healing, expression, and play. Dr. Alexandra Solomon has been studying relationships for over two decades as a professor, therapist, and author. Whether she is working with members of the military, business leaders, clinicians, or college students, Dr. Solomon thoughtfully and compassionately blends clinical theory, research, and cultural critique in order to offer tools for loving with courage and optimism. In this talk, she will introduce you to the idea of sexual self-awareness and explore how sex is both a behavior and a gateway into some of the deepest questions we encounter as humans: Do I matter? Am I OK? Are you with me? You’ll leave with a new perspective and tools for approaching sex with empathy, curiosity, and self-compassion.

Alexandra Solomon’s speaking skills are that all-too-rare combination of deep knowledge, ease on stage, and relatability. She is skilled as both a solo presenter and in-conversation partner, and always arrives prepared and ready to connect with the audience.

Alexandra is particularly notable for her deft ability to engage the audience on the topics of sex, love, and intimacy. Using humor and insight, she creates a warm learning environment that supports vulnerability and connection.

In addition, Alexandra is an excellent collaborator who easily customizes her content to meet the needs of her host. She is a consummate professional who loves her work and her community.

Working Across Difference:
Identifying, Disrupting, and Preventing Microaggressions

We are living through a time of tremendous upheaval and uncertainty. Along with the stress, this painful time also gifts us the opportunity to examine and reimagine the culture of our organization. We are excited to offer this opportunity to learn new skills and a new perspective for working together across differences. Dr. Alexandra Solomon will provide training about microaggressions that will leave all of us better prepared to identify, disrupt, and ultimately prevent, behaviors that can erode collaboration and innovation in our organization. Although conversations about social justice can feel uncomfortable, we trust our ability to come together as a community of learners to ensure that we all have the tools we need to honor our mission of equity, service, and inclusion.
Dr. Solomon expertly facilitated a series of emotionally candid conversations on racial discrimination within our organization. Her empathy and thought provoking exercises helped us identify biases we didn’t know we had, and more importantly, how to work towards overcoming them. The sessions with Dr. Solomon, attended by thousands of our staff, jumpstarted our journey towards creating a more supportive and inclusive workplace culture. We look forward to working with Dr. Solomon again!

Leading Bravely:
Authenticity from the Inside-Out

Research has identified that women in leadership experience a catch-22, feeling pressured to present as competent and strong while also conveying warmth and kindness. These mixed messages can leave leaders feeling as if they are walking a tightrope, trading authenticity for impression-management. In this keynote address, Dr. Solomon will talk about how Relational Self-Awareness can help us more deeply understand ourselves and experiences with colleagues, supervisors, and employees, so we can lead with courage and clarity.
