What I Do

lex-schroeder-headshotI design and lead organizational change strategies from a feminist, living systems perspective. This means honoring all of the intelligence in the room, prioritizing self-organization as a key way of getting things done, and caring for people, relationships, and social impact as much as revenue in order to move important work forward.

I also serve as a writer, editor, and editorial consultant to leading organizations studying the future of work.

The central theme of my work so far has been work itself – what work is valued, what value means, who gets to do certain types of work, who gets paid, how to do work more effectively, and how to work together better in our teams and communities while keeping social justice values at the center. As Co-Founder of Feminists at Work, I consult with teams who are looking to design their work through a feminist lens. Women and people of color must play an equal and equitable role in determining what the future of work looks like. Feminists at Work offers ways to elevate those voices as well as historically devalued ways of getting good work done.

I’m trained in the Art of Hosting Conversations that Matter, a way of teaching participatory leadership practices. I’m also a Leadership Ambassador with Take The Lead, a nonprofit organization and movement of people dedicated to gender parity in leadership across all sectors by 2025.
