Lauren Gibbs, Parity

Spokesperson and retired Olympian

Lauren is a 2018 US Olympic silver medalist in the sport of bobsled. She accomplished this goal just three and half years after leaving a successful career in corporate sales management in 2014. She earned an undergraduate degree from Brown University in Entrepreneurship and an Executive MBA from Pepperdine University, and through public speaking has found a way to satisfy her passion for corporate-level coaching, training and consulting.

After the 2018 Winter Olympics, Lauren was invited to give a TEDx talk where she discussed navigating the complexities of goal setting and taking calculated risks to live a life of fulfillment. Fortune 500 companies, universities, business symposiums, direct sales organizations, in a variety of industries have retained Lauren to speak about parallels of achieving success in business and elite level athletics, leadership, handling adversity in high pressure situations and pathways of improving organizational culture. Lauren Gibbs is a spokeswoman for Parity, an organization working to close the pay gap in professional sports sponsorship.
