Lauren Young

Reuters (World at Work, Finance): Workplace, personal finance and digital expert
From retirement to real estate, Lauren Young has covered all aspects of personal finance and the workplace for the past two decades, most recently at Reuters, where she is Editor of Digital Special Projects. Previously, she served as Personal Business Editor and Intern Coordinator at BusinessWeek; Senior Writer, Staff Writer, and Staff Reporter at SmartMoney Magazine and Reporter at Dow Jones Newswires.

Young is a frequent moderator and regular "talking head" on media outlets. She won an ICI Excellence in Personal Finance Journalism Award for a SmartMoney series of video interviews with mutual fund managers along with a Newswomen’s Club of New York Front Page Award for the ReutersMoney FacebookLive video series on personal finance topics.

Young serves on the boards of Pennsylvania State University’s Schreyers Honors College, Penn State Hillel, the Deadline Club and the Brooklyn Heights Synagogue. She also is the founder of the 29 Post, a (profitable!) student newspaper at Brooklyn’s P.S. 29 elementary school.

A Philadelphia native, Young worked for her elementary school, middle school, high school and college newspapers. She holds a BA degree in English from Penn State, where she was the winner of an Outstanding Young Alumni Award.  She also holds an MSJ degree from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University, which recognized her with an Alumni Service Award for her work as the president of the Medill Club of Greater New York.
