Lacy is an influence coach, author, speaker and advocate for women through her company, Real Women Real Success. She is also the Co-Director of the Women's Leadership Program at Cal State Fullerton's College of Business and Economics. She enjoyed a successful, 30-year in nonprofit management, 20 as a CEO. She excelled at growing her organizations, particularly during economic downturns.
Having succeeded in a "man's world," and being disheartened with the lack of mentoring and support among women, she now devotes her life to supporting women in achieving higher levels of success by increasing their influence, so they can break through barriers and take charge of their career advancement.
Lacy's proven philosophy is that the most important asset a woman has is her innate female strengths. Having put this to the test in seemingly insurmountable odds, she is now a full-time coach and consultant and mentor helping women learn how to apply their female strengths to build their influence.
Lacy often points out that women are 50% of the population and 57% of college graduates, yet only hold 6% of Fortune 500 CEO positions, 14% of government executive positions, and receive only 2.4% 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.
