About Lauren

My research has focused on the stories leaders tell to motivate stakeholders to work for diversity, social justice and inclusion. I worked as an interviewer for Steven Speilberg's Shoah Visual History Project. I have presented on the Shoah and Darfur at Yad Vashem in Jerusalem. I have authored "Adu, My Grandfather Said: Find a Tree and Look for the Light" about Darfur. I contributed two chapters of commentary to an anthology entitled "The Call of Memory". At the University of New Haven, I am involved in the campus climate coalition and workshops about validating all voices.
