Lacy is an author, public speaker, high performance coach and leadership trainer for women seeking more success and fulfillment in their lives. She has a 30-year career as a business and nonprofit executive. Having succeeded in a "man's world," and being disheartened with the lack of mentoring and support she saw women giving each other, she now devotes herself to helping women achieve higher levels of leadership and success. Her proven philosophy is that while competence is important on the job, the most important skills a woman needs to succeed are the innate talents and strengths she possesses as a female. Having put this to the test to overcome seemingly insurmountable odds, she is now a full-time coach and mentor for women, and is actively building the first ever community of women supporting women. The antithesis of the "Good 'Ole Boys Club," she calls it the Women's Professional Besties Club.
Lacy often points out that women are 50% of the population and 57% of college graduates, and yet women only hold 5% of Fortune 500 executive leadership, 14% of government executive leadership, and receive only 2.7% of venture capital. Lacy's mission is to have an impact on this disheartening imbalance and to help bring to a waiting world the talents and strengths needed to solve today's most complex problems by helping women ascend to higher levels of leadership.
