Lauran Star, the leading Diversity and Inclusion psychology expert, works closely with leadership and human resource management to help businesses thrive. A best-selling author and leading consultant, Lauran delivers customized, edge-of-your-seat keynotes and workshops that offer tangible answers and compel immediate action.


While Lauran has over two decades of leadership development experience with Fortune 100 and other top companies, she is a true original, performing on Broadway, serving as a medic in the United States Armed Forces, and is in the process of writing her Dissertation for a PhD in Organizational Psychology, with a focus on Diversity and Inclusion.


With Lauran, no two presentations are ever the same. She deftly weaves information specific to her audiences into her talks and effortlessly engages an entire room. Whether a small group around a conference table, or an audience of 5,000 in an imposing auditorium, her unscripted, thought-provoking speeches are authentic, humorous, and stress practical solutions rather than placing blame.


Lauran attributes her success to her brutal but compassionate honesty. She dives in where other presenters tread lightly, yet is insightful, warm, and approachable. Lauran consistently engages audiences where it matters to them, and leaves participants with both the inspiration, and the tools, to act.


Also, a university professor, Lauran is particularly drawn to understanding and playing to each generation’s strengths and guiding others in powerfully navigating this ever-evolving diversity of talent. She is known for uncovering blind spots to achieve optimal performance. Companies who work with Lauran find that they dramatically enhance employee performance and retention.


Lauran’s influence in the media is far-reaching. She has been featured on CBS Radio, published in Forbes Women, Huffington Post, Talent Management, Society of Human Resource Management, and other trade magazines. She is the author of several books including the best-selling Your Power Pivot: Shifting the Paradigm of Work/Life Empowerment, and the forthcoming Pivotal Workforce: Moving from Diversity to Inclusion.


When Lauran is not speaking, writing, or consulting, you can find her on the girls’ soccer or lacrosse field coaching and empowering the next generation of young women.
