As the CEO, Leslie Wingo leads the Sanders\Wingo team, a Texas-based independent multicultural creative intelligence firm, delivering solutions for companies and their brands. Sanders\Wingo is focused on cultivating human connections through brand storytelling, strategy, and content development by partnering with brands like Pivotal Ventures, Tempo Novus, US Census, AT&T, and Croc's.
As a speaker, she confronts stereotypes, challenges labels, exposes bias, and has tough conversations around race and gender. Leslie works with companies to discover and strengthen their current practices around diversity and equity. Her goal is that every employee and culture is valued, their contribution is maximized and the company's organizational culture is inclusive.
Leslie also believes in philanthropy, and gives her time to organizations whose values align with her own, like the Texas Book Festival, the New Philanthropists and Ceresa.
Her most important role is raising her little humans (ages 4 and 8). They are her biggest gift (and sometimes the biggest challenge!).
