CEO and Co-Owner – CauseLabs, PBC
Sheryle Gillihan is committed to her values and purpose-driven work. She is Co-Owner and CEO of CauseLabs, Fort Worth’s first certified B Corp and Public Benefit Corporation. Sheryle is a 2022 Great Women of Texas honoree, a 2017 Dallas Business Journal 40 under 40 honoree, a nonprofit board member, social enterprise advisor, and speaker on leadership and impact. She uses technology as a force for good to bridge cultural gaps and disrupt both local and global challenges to help organizations scale impact towards equality, education, and access.
Sheryle fuses her hope for a better, brighter future with over 20 years of leadership, operations, and technical management experience. Ranging from military to corporate to nonprofit sectors, her career path led her to CauseLabs in 2010, where she brought immense perspective, coordination, and a passion for using business and technology to grow positive impact.
A year in the military as an Arabic translator, seven years as a stay-at-home mother and four years in corporate America taught Sheryle to seek purpose and value meaningful work. In 2010, she joined CauseLabs, a web agency working with nonprofits and social enterprises to scale their missions and solve problems worth solving. It blended her experience with technology with her passion for giving back. Through her work, she discovered her own poverty story and leaned into her values to do her part to create a better future for everyone.
Sheryle has served on multiple advisory boards, led the United Way of Tarrant County’s KERNEL social innovation program, and led a Girl Scout troop for 13 years.
Today, in addition to her role as CauseLabs CEO and co-owner, Sheryle serves on the Tarrant County College advisory board, the EO Fort Worth Board, leads Impact Fort Worth, is a mentor for several social enterprise programs, and serves a delegate at Opportunity Collaboration, a community of leaders focused on poverty alleviation.
Sheryle speaks at conferences around the world about purpose-driven, mission-focused business and leadership skills and she recently started a podcast empowering women called Woman-Owned Agency.
