Oklahoma Women’s Coalition, a statewide nonprofit organization working to improve the lives of women and girls through education and advocacy, announced the election of Laura Lang, CEO of Thrive – Sexual Health Collective for Youth, as Chairwoman of the Board of Directors.

Laura Lang is a nonprofit leader with more than twenty years in the social services and social justice arena.

Coalition Executive Director, Liz Charles, shared, “I am pleased to welcome Laura Lang as our new Board Chairwoman. Her strong voice and proven experience throughout her service on the Board of Directors have been strategic in moving the mission of the Coalition forward.  I’m confident in our future under Laura’s leadership as we work to expand our efforts as a statewide women’s advocacy organization.”
