Lauren Fitzpatrick Shanks


With more than 14 years of experience working at 5 different Fortune 500 companies plus being a black millennial woman in engineering & tech, Lauren understands from a personal and professional level what keeps employees engaged and wanting to stay at a company. She holds a Bachelor's of Science degree in Aerospace Engineering and an MBA in Operations Management. But at her core, she's a curious, and at times overly transparent, conversationalist with a superpower of getting others to break down their fear of vulnerability and feel comfortable sharing as well. The combination of her strengths led her to create Keep Wondering Out Loud or, as she likes to call it, KeepWOL.
