In 2019, Lauren authored, 1001 Watts, a guide to help women navigate new paths in the technological era, with a percentage of profits donated to fund women’s education in STEM. As Burnham Benefits expands its national footprint in partnership with Baldwin Risk Partners (BRP), Lauren’s advocacy and work around a more inclusive and engaged workforce will benefit the company. Today, she unites this passion with Burnham’s commitment to social accountability as a certified B-Corp.

“I am deeply dedicated to supporting organizations and human capital efforts that create paths for women to re-enter the workforce. Burnham has built an outstanding culture where we are valued, and where our individual mission, vision, and purpose are realized. Our organization thrives because we feel empowered and connected with our work. Our clients thrive because together we have a shared sense of destiny,” says Lauren.

Her desire to learn from her colleagues and her devotion to a more equitable community truly reflects our shared commitment to a more holistic and unified firm. We are inspired and excited to see where she continues to lead us,” says Kristen.
