I’M LAUREN

Over the last 15 years, I have navigated the challenging waters being a high-achieving business woman  and single mother of three. I have served as general counsel of many companies.  I currently serve as Chief legal officer and data protection officer for Workhuman, a company leading the employee appreciation revolution.

Showing up with authenticity and owning everything that I am as a female leader, was the key to my success.

and you can do it too.

Strategic Leader.

Forbes Contributor.

Mother.

It doesn’t have to be lonely at the top. You have found an ally in me. Let’s create something together. It is time to elevate!

but it’s time to

stop

playing

nice.

We won’t see a more feminine approach represented in leadership until we as women dare to take inspired action. We must put real, tangible, action plans into place and make good decisions timely. We are not just dreamers, we are over-comers. The time is now!

It’s time to step into our true power, refuse to play small, and

Super Power

Having it all,

owning it all

They say that knowledge is power. I say that knowledge followed by action is power.

The world is full of people with good ideas. What the world isn’t full of is people who actually implement their ideas. Embrace every opportunity to increase your knowledge. Then… take the appropriate action.

Cats are prime examples of the insatiable desire to “know.” Get comfortable with being uncomfortable, as this is where true growth ignites itself. Keep learning.

Embrace new experiences, see opportunities, and surprise yourself. Trust me… it’ll be fun!

Although we have come very far, we continue the global fight to embrace diversity, inclusion and belonging. Be sure you’re doing your part to welcome those to a seat at your table, allowing others to speak and be truly heard. ... See MoreSee Less

Israel still hasn't learned this. Maybe US should move the Statue of Liberty to Israel and open their borders. Without diversity and multiculturalism...Israel will cease to exist. They are not having enough babies. Israel needs a few hundred million fertile African men to help build the population up to global standards.

Look around… there are so many she-roes in your life!

Celebrate the success of these women and girls as you would want others to celebrate yours. What goes around comes around, so make a promise to yourself today to be just as enthusiastic about the success of others as you are about your own.

The Equal Pay Act was signed into law on June 10, 1963, mandating that men and women receive the same pay for the same work. Yet, almost 60 years later, the American workforce still struggles with a gender pay gap that affects not only women but also their families, especially women of color and their families.

The paradigm will have shifted when the term “equal pay” does not exist.

How can you join the fight to support equal pay?

Women, particularly the senior ones, are labeled as “too aggressive” in the workplace. Gender blind studies have shown that men are more aggressive in their offices than women. Yet, we’re still busy telling all the women that they’re too aggressive.

This is a real issue and it begins with little girls being labeled as “bossy” instead of appreciating their leadership skills. One paramount day there will be no “female leaders” - just leaders.

Are you one of them?

There’s a way to be bold and aggressive-NOT just bossy! There’s a fine line! That’s my opinion!

“I already know that” is the most dangerous statement you can make. A remarkable leader is someone who is continually seeking knowledge and growth.

It instills you to be knowledgeable, trustworthy, and reliable.
