Lindsay is an impact strategist who brings nearly 20 years of experience building impact strategies and campaigns for films, nonprofits, foundations and philanthropists that drive meaningful and measurable change. The heart of Lindsay’s work lies at the intersection of storytelling and social impact. Lindsay previously served as a Principal in the Impact Entertainment practice at The Raben Group, a leading public affairs and communications firm. Raben Group clients included Amazon Studios, National Geographic Channel, Story Syndicate, Sony Pictures Television, Grainey Films, Hearst Media Production Group and YouTube Impact. During the 2020 election cycle, Lindsay and her team developed the strategy and ran the impact campaign for ALL IN: The Fight for Democracy featuring Stacey Abrams. Together with partners, the non partisan #ALLINFORVOTING campaign registered over 221,000 new voters and shared voting information with close to 80 million people ahead of the 2020 election. As Film Campaign Director at Malala Fund Lindsay developed the strategy and ran the global Stand #withMalala campaign using Davis Guggenheim’s documentary He Named Me Malala to advance the movement for girls’ secondary education. Engaging over 1.3 million young people in screenings and campaign programs, Stand #withMalala has helped shift education policy in Nigeria and Pakistan, raised over $3M to support Malala Fund programs in developing countries and trained close to 1000 girls in advocacy and leadership in Pakistan, Afghanistan, Nigeria, India and Kenya. She previously served as Sr. Director, Marketing and Strategic Alliances at Participant Media developing or supporting impact campaigns for films including Waiting for “Superman”, TEACH , Middle of Nowhere, A Place at the Table, Last Call at the Oasis, Lincoln, Misconception, Promised Land and Ivory Tower. She has worked as a Social Impact Agent at Propper Daley, helped launch the Cool Globes public art exhibit in Los Angeles and Copenhagen (during COP15) and helped build the Stop Global Warming Virtual March Campaign with the late Senator John McCain and Producer Laurie David, where she also worked on the impact campaign supporting the Academy-Award winning film An Inconvenient Truth. Lindsay was the recipient of Self Magazine’s Women Doing Good Award, has been featured on The Today Show, and contributed to pieces for The New York Times, TIME, Glamour and Elle Magazines. She has served as a guest lecturer on the intersection of media and impact at Pepperdine’s Graziadio School of Business, University of Southern California, and Stonybrook University. A UC Davis graduate, Lindsay is based in Sausalito, CA but remains passport ready, travelling as often as she can.
