Lori is lead strategist for Diversity, Equity & Inclusion at Stanford Graduate School of Business and cofounder of the new Stanford VMware Women’s Leadership Innovation Lab, offering her a unique view at the intersection of the two organizations. Under her leadership, the lab launched a corporate affiliates program in 2014 — a learning community of more than 55 corporations, government agencies, and thought leaders working together for change. It is the now the second largest affiliates program on the Stanford campus. In her work at Stanford GSB, Lori is pioneering “small wins” to make the classroom experience more inclusive, to diversify our community, and to foster new research in the areas of leadership, inclusion, and diversity.
