What is needed now to realize Dr. King’s dream?
With a master’s degree in health administration and a resume brimming with leadership roles, Lauren Morton knows all about the bravery and strength expected of Black women. As it turns out, though, the bravest thing she’s done so far is to leave her successful career path to start a new one. After graduating from Emory and earning her master’s from The George Washington University, Lauren began a career in hospital management and worked her way up through a series of leadership positions at Tenet Healthcare. Despite her success in the field, her faith and fond memories of Emory steered her toward more intimate grassroots community work. In her current role, she works to provide educational programming for people interested in personal growth and wellness. Lauren has a deep appreciation for the arts, using visits to the High Museum and the Museum of Design Atlanta to decompress and always making a point to stop at local museums or art galleries when traveling. She’s also a cinephile and a true believer in the power of cinema to move and inspire. During the pandemic, Lauren worked with her faith community to curate a film festival based on the podcast This Movie Changed Me. Who is she? A multi-comma woman where EVERYTHING behind the comma brings her joy.
