Aspirations in Computing Community Program Manager

As the Aspirations in Computing (AiC) Community Program Manager, Lauren is responsible for program strategy and implementation. She manages stewardship and reporting for a community of over 22,000 women, genderqueer, or non-binary technologists.

Prior to joining the Community team, Lauren analyzed and created processes necessary for AiC Recognitions program operation, with a particular focus on capacity-growing, sustainable development. Between communications and prize distribution, she managed strategies and workflows that annually reached more than 4,000 students, and more than 1,500 educators.

Prior to NCWIT, Lauren managed a research center within the Institute of Arctic and Alpine Research, where she facilitated collaborative hydrologic and earth science research initiatives between CU Boulder faculty, graduate students, and scientists in the U.S. Geological Survey. Over her four years in this role, she directly contributed to securing nearly $2 million in research grant funding for CU Boulder. She received a BA in Evolutionary Biology from Harvard College.
