About the authors

Lauren Porosoff is the founder of EMPOWER Forwards, a collaborative consultancy practice that builds learning communities that truly belong to everyone and where everyone truly belongs. Lauren has taught 2nd, 5th, 6th, and 7th grade in New York, Washington, DC, and Maryland. She has also served as a DEI coordinator, grade dean, and leader of curricular initiatives.

Lauren's commitment to transforming the psychological experience of school has been a constant in her teaching practice, leading her to learn about values-guided behavior change in contextual psychology. Informed by research and practices, and by her 18 years as a teacher, Lauren develops tools and protocols that empower students and teachers to make school a source of meaning, vitality, and community.
