Meet Lauren: Senior Manager, Experience Design Operations at Comcast!
Describe your What do you love most about your job?
The people. I remind myself daily how lucky I am to work with such a talented group. I love that I can handle the business end of an organization so our designers can concentrate on being creative and strategic. Experience Design collaborates with leaders and teams across Comcast-NBCUniversal-Sky to create exceptional experiences that leave lasting impressions, improve daily lives, and foster long-term customer relationships.
How have other women helped shape your career?
I have had the opportunity to work with many strong, powerful, intelligent women, all from whom I have learned something. In the end, the woman who helped shaped my career the most was my mother. She has always been my strongest supporter, mentor, and best friend. She has lifted me up when I thought I wasn’t good enough, and talked me through stressful moments I didn’t know I could handle.
Outside of work, what’s something you’re passionate about?
I take all the creative vibes from everyone I work with and put them to use at home. I love to paint, sew, craft, basically any kind of “project.” Most of all, I live for fashion!
What do you value most about your WICT membership?
What it has done for me and my career. I joined WICT seven years ago and immediately applied to be on the board because I believed in the mission. With WICT, titles or levels don’t seem to exist. That made me feel comfortable with my voice and allowed me to speak up and be more confident with my job. I am forever grateful to WICT for alleviating my imposter syndrome!
