Trabian Shorters

Trabian Shorters is a retired tech entrepreneur and a former foundation executive who is now “hacking” solutions to America’s narrative on race.  The America that has no racial majority has already been born. They are in elementary school now. This talk draws upon meta data and trends in order to provide perspective and perception tools that you can and should use to update your own narrative on race, communities and America’s future. Those who apply the framing available from this discussion will be able to enjoy greater latitude in their diverse relationships and greater longitude in the economy.  From this groundbreaking work Shorters has been named an Aspen Fellow, an Ashoka Fellow, and produced a 2015 New York Times bestseller called “REACH: 40 Black Men Speak on Living, Leading and Succeeding.”
