Lauren advocates for ED&I as a business growth driver and revenue generator, which successful businesses are embedding into the role of every single colleague.
Sharing ways to create culture change including the benefits of collaboration, even with competitors, the importance of inclusive policy, and ally skills training across workforces, Lauren provides many brilliant examples of success across financial services, travel and food sectors.
