Hello! Good to meet you.


Lex SchroederI’m a speaker, writer, and facilitator on leadership and systems change. I help teams work together more effectively and tackle challenges head on. I work with organizations to become more fair, equitable, and just in their everyday practice. And I work with women leaders across all sectors and generations to shift systems by leading at their full capacity.

Much of this work I do through FeministsAtWork Take The Lead Women, an organization dedicated to achieving gender parity in leadership across all sectors by 2025.

My Background

I’ve worked as an editor and strategist in the systems thinking community, with long stints at two very different systems thinking organizations, the The Lean Enterprise Institute and The Berkana Institute. As a freelance writer and facilitator in the Art of Hosting community of practice, I learned how to convene and host cross-sector gatherings and strategic conversations. I spent five years in the Boston startup scene heading up the editorial side of a nonprofit startup. Since my early days in business publishing, I’ve been steeped in all things process design. I’m privileged to have had attended Smith College where I earned a B.A. in Government, and I’m proud to be an advisor for Wonder Women of Boston
