Ann Lawrence is Chief Visionary Officer of Pink51. Pink 51 is a shopping platform that is all about supporting women-owned or led businesses. Since women influence 85% of all consumer spending in the US, there is an opportunity to make a difference with everyday spending just by shopping through Pink51, where a portion of your spending supports women and girls’ economic development.

“We believe that empowering women to succeed economically will change the world for the better and that women can use their purchasing power to help other women and their communities to achieve even greater success.”

Ann has actively advocated for women’s issues throughout her career, particularly to expand women’s opportunities in Corporate America. A graduate of Yale University and Columbia Law School, she is now a partner at the global law firm DLA Piper, where she maintains a full, corporate-law practice while also being actively involved with the Women’s Initiative Program at the firm. The mother of two young children, Ann envisioned Pink51 while searching for retailers that combined quality products with a commitment to promoting women.
