VP of People, RealSelf
Chapter Board - Seattle
Across international and domestic nonprofits, juvenile justice and secondary education systems, capital markets and impact investing—and now at RealSelf—Lauren Sato has built a career under the mantra of creating a world that works for everyone.
Lauren is the VP of People at RealSelf, a Seattle-based company that brings transparency to the multi-billion dollar cosmetic medicine and aesthetics industry. At RealSelf, Lauren is focused on translating the company mission that centers on confident and active decision making into People systems and practices that put the power to define one’s career and success back into the hands of every employee.
After seeing firsthand how challenging it can be to create opportunities for disconnected communities as a nonprofit, governmental institution, or even financial system, Lauren realized that those who actually have the greatest ability to impact lives are employers. Having the opportunity to shape who gets hired and how, who advances and how, and how all of these people are taken care of throughout those experiences is what gets her out of bed in the morning.
