Lauren Glickman is a Managing Partner at RenewComm and serves as the lead Communications Consultant for Women of Renewable Industries and Sustainable Energy. She works to support the WRISE online community, assisting members, supporting chapters and driving online engagement via the WRISE member center and social media. Lauren Glickman has over a decade of clean energy and climate change advocacy and campaign experience, and a successful track record for implementing winning social media and online strategies.
As of the Fall 2013 Semester, Lauren is an adjunct professor at The George Washington University School of Media and Public Affairs, teaching undergraduate, graduate and executive education courses and seminars on social media theory and practice.
Previously, she worked at the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) where she was responsible for the re-design, re-launch and management of AWEA’s social media program and online advocacy portal www.PowerofWind.com. Traffic to PowerofWind.com increased 40,000 percent in the first six months after re-launch, and Lauren’s work earned AWEA a spot in the top 10 social media savvy trade associations.
She also developed and implemented best practices for social and online engagement of AWEA industry members and advocates, taking engagement rates from below average to 4 times above industry standards. This growth in online engagement ran in-parallel to a successful list growth campaign that increased online subscribers ten-fold.
Prior to AWEA, Lauren worked on clean energy issues and environmental campaigns across the United States. In 2011 she wrote and achieved passage of the Virginia Voluntary Solar Resource Development Fund Act of 2011 that promoted solar energy projects for homeowners and utilities in the state.
Lauren graduated from Tulane University with a dual degree in English and Environmental Policy. When not tweeting or instagramming awkward moments, Lauren enjoys cooking, bluegrass, horseback riding and triathlons. She is an amateur equestrian and keeps her horse Marli at a barn in Poolesville, MD.
