Lauralee Sheehan is on a social mission. As a female founder and chief creative officer of Digital 55, a successful digital media content studio in Toronto, she’s also a rare breed of entrepreneur in a male-dominated industry.

Sheehan’s story is equally unique. She’s a musician and songwriter, an ex-member of an indie rock band and one-time record label owner. She’s also proficient in digital content creation, and, most importantly for her, a long-standing champion for social change.

So much so that Digital 55’s mantra is to harness the power of digital design for good. Its commitment to equity, diversity and inclusion, 21st century skills development, anti-discrimination, human rights and a multitude of other causes are proudly displayed on its website.

Her team of designers, developers, researchers and content producers creates digital interactive media products and learning experiences for not-for-profits, government agencies and companies.
