Rachel Thomas  

Co-Founder & President, LeanIn.org

Rachel Thomas is the founder of numerous startup companies. In addition to starting BrainTrust in her mid-twenties, she also co-founded Subtext, a social reading company, in 2010. Thomas has also served as VP of marketing for social gaming giant Playdom, now the cornerstone of Disney's Interactive Media Group. In addition, she has led large-scale positioning and marketing initiatives for a number of well-known consumer technology companies.

Thomas is the co-founder and president of Lean In, a global community committed to encouraging and supporting women leaning in to their ambitions. In her Lean In Story, she says that in early November 2012, she received a phone call from Sheryl Sandberg asking her to run Lean In. After questioning whether or not she should accept, she asked herself, "What if I don't do it?" She accepted that day because Thomas realized her biggest regret would be not doing something she believed in so deeply.
