Speaker Bio

Lola Wright is Chicago born and built, with a deep appreciation and understanding for all of the city’s complexities.

Lola grew up in the wealth and privilege of private schools, country clubs and manicured neighborhoods, yet she always sensed something was missing. She sought out aliveness and freedom in music, immersing herself in the hip hop and house music scenes of 90s Chicago. Then at 18, a pregnancy. By 22, the mother of two young children and living in a volatile and insecure environment. A year later, she was on her own, determined to create a new experience.

An ordained minister with a gift for weaving together the mystical and material, she served for many years as the CEO of Bodhi Center, an organization committed to personal transformation, collective awakening, conscious activism and community-building.

Her work has taken her to stages around the world as a speaker and vocalist, including the Agape International Spiritual Center, TEDx, Chicago Ideas, and Havana Jazz Festival.

Lola’s path has included stops at some of the world’s leading global financial institutions and technology startups, training in several well-respected coaching methodologies, and experience as an entrepreneur – all culminating in her desire to challenge people to live fierce and loving lives.

Lola loves nothing more than creating unexpected encounters that shake up what you thought you knew. This includes more than 300 live events since 2014, including a sold out monthly experience that brought together some of the country’s most prolific artists and thinkers, and thousands of hours consulting with and coaching teams and individuals in their pursuit of something greater.

She is raising four creative, brilliant children with a partner who is always willing to ask what more is wanting to be revealed.
