Lauren's Rise

Early on in her career, Lauren recognized that there was a serious lack of representation of Women of Color in communications. So rather than settling to be the only black woman in the room, she founded ColorComm — an industry leader in making communications more equitable — and is herself one of the nation’s top thought leaders on Diversity & Inclusion, Crisis Communications, and Media Relations.

Through Lauren’s leadership, ColorComm has expanded to become the holding company for ColorComm Network, ColorComm Media Group, and Men of Color in Communications. Over the years, Lauren has filled her shelves with numerous awards, including Ad Age’s Women to Watch, PR Week’s 40 Under 40, The Root 100, and the Holmes Report Innovator 25.

Professional Superpower

Lauren recognized the need for Women of Color in her industry before it became mainstream. And her work has led to multiple glass ceilings and barriers shattering.

Personal Superpower

She leads with empathy and understands the strain that comes with being a Woman of Color in an ever-growing industry — and makes sure she has plenty of time to pursue her other loves: traveling, cycling, running, and cooking.

What Drives Lauren

Knowing that there will always be more room for representation in her industry and beyond keeps Lauren motivated every day.
