Lauren Wylie is the Global Head of Sustainability & Oliver Wyman for Society for global management consultancy Oliver Wyman, where she specializes in bringing her marketing, sustainability, and social impact expertise to bear to assist groups with communicating about climate change and community engagement. In 2008, Lauren, then a support manager for the company, won a spot on a leadership expedition to Antarctica with Sir Robert Swan and the 2041 Foundation. The journey was so impactful for Lauren that she dedicated herself to starting a local green team, which grew into her role leading Oliver Wyman’s internal sustainability efforts globally. Working with her parent company, Marsh McLennan, she co-created its award-winning Green Traveler program and other initiatives, while growing Oliver Wyman’s global Green Champion network to engage colleagues. Lauren led the effort to fulfill Oliver Wyman’s commitment to become a CarbonNeutral company and credits EarthShare’s Green Team, which she was active in until leaving New York in 2013, with critical peer-sharing opportunities that helped form her thinking around sustainability and engagement. Lauren also leads Oliver Wyman for Society, overseeing the company’s social impact pro-bono consulting program, volunteering, and fundraising.
Lauren has returned to Antarctica twice since 2008 as part of Robert Swan’s leadership team, and has shared her story with many schools and organizations to raise awareness of the need to protect the continent. She currently resides in Sausalito, CA, where she was appointed as Sustainability Commissioner in 2019.
