As A+E Networks’ longest-serving employee, it’s no surprise that the honors and appointments for Raven, who started out her career as a production assistant, keep on coming. In September, she was elected to the board of directors at PENCIL, one of New York’s leading education non-profits, which is committed to improving the city’s public schools and its students. “Mentoring the next generation is our responsibility,” she says. Back at the office, Raven’s successful run as president and CEO included tripling the company’s revenues.

How can cable do better job at supporting the industry’s women?

It’s up to the leadership of the industry to ensure that we are producing growth opportunities for women. Mentoring the next generation is our responsibility. WICT and NAMIC are great platforms to help the industry focus on the need for developing the next level of leadership in our industry.

 How do you define a successful career?

It’s having the opportunity to be part of a growth industry and be challenged as we grew our business. In addition, having been a part of a dynamic team at A+E Networks and forming great relationships has made this not only a successful career but a rewarding one.

 When not in the office, where are we most likely to find you?

Seeing theatre and indie films; and in summer – on a beach with my husband or traveling to explore familiar and new places.
