Path to WEV

Lauren is passionate about connecting people to organizations like WEV that work towards building a more just and equitable society. She holds a master’s degree in mass communication and a bachelor’s degree in communication, and  uses her background in writing and communications to share stories about WEV clients and supporters to inspire the philanthropic community to invest in what also inspires them. She is humbled to be part of an organization that helps foster meaningful relationships with individuals to further the empowerment of women and historically marginalized entrepreneurs.

“Being part of the WEV community is amazing; I am constantly inspired by clients, community members, and colleagues. It is a true pleasure.”
