In this role, Lauren is responsible for shaping the vision the Design & Research team and making it real, building and managing the first design and research ops team, fostering strong team culture, and raising the profile of the Twitter Design & Research brand internally as well as externally.

Prior to joining Twitter in June 2018, she was a Global Principal at Wolff Olins where she served as Head of Strategy of the SF office.

Right now, Lauren is having a lot of fun working with her team to design the optimal conditions for the Twitter Design & Research team to hum. As an Aries who wants to get everything done by yesterday, what's top of mind for her in 2019 is patience and pacing.

The Art of Gathering

I recommend it because, in our Design Ops role, we are often playing the role of "host" - from leading meetings to design team events - and Priya's book is the ultimate guide for how to make those gatherings as meaningful and memorable as possible.
