Lauren Wesley Wilson, president and founder, ColorComm: Power List 2017

2017 rank: 38

It takes a certain level of confidence and passion to leave everything behind and embark upon the unknown.

Lauren created something new, but did so in an amazing way. She started ColorComm as a means to connect women of color in the comms industry and provide valuable resources that level-up their professional and personal development. It’s grown to so much more.

It has catapulted her into the league of leaders who can convene the likes of Whoopi Goldberg, Gloria Steinem, and Ariana Huffington; developed and leveraged a digital platform that provides the latest industry trends in diversity; and partnered with the Cannes Lions Festival.

The grace, determination, and vision she possesses is to be admired and her work speaks for itself. Few can bring people together to make a major impact on the lives of others and an industry. Lauren has set the bar, and her passion for paying it forward should be mirrored and celebrated.
