Carol Lauder
2011 Woman of the Year


Each year Executive Women in Texas Government (EWTG) is proud to recognize a member as the Woman of the Year. This is a woman who has made a difference in EWTG, her profession, and her community through life-long learning and her support of other women.
Carol Lauder, EWTG member for over ten years and former President of the organization, was named the 2011 EWTG Woman of the Year at the organization’s 25th Annual Professional Development Conference on November 21, 2011. In addition to serving as EWTG president in 2010, she has been active in two other Board positions and numerous EWTG committees.
From 1981 until her retirement in July 2011, Carol worked in various positions at the Comptroller’s office. In 1997, Carol was nominated for “Outstanding Woman in Texas Government for Leadership” by the Governor’s Commission for Women and she was a 2009 graduate of Leadership Texas. Carol is a Certified Professional Facilitator who reached another career highlight when she facilitated at the “Listening to the City” event in New York City for the rebuilding of Ground Zero.
Carol takes pride in serving in local organizations and was a founding member of Impact Austin, a woman’s philanthropic organization that provides grants of more than $100,000 each to worthy causes that impact lives in the Austin area. She is also active in Meals on Wheels and has been delivering meals to those in need since 2007. A food delivery from Carol is not just about the meal, it’s about the greeting, warmth, the conversation, and love that she gives to each of the seniors.
Since her late twenties, Carol has performed for the Austin community through her involvement in local performing arts programs. She has acted in numerous plays and in 1989 she starred in the Oliver Haley play “Who’s Happy Now.” For this role, she was nominated for Austin’s version of the Emmy Award, the B. Iden Payne Awards “Best Actress in a Comedy.”
The 2011 Woman of the Year nominees also included Mary Castleberry, Susan Durso, and Ginny Booten. They are all outstanding examples of leadership and service to others and EWTG is a better organization for their participation. In accepting her award, Carol expressed that she shares it with her fellow nominees, for it is a great accomplishment to be nominated with such exceptional women.  And so it goes in EWTG.
