Event Description:

Leave it Better Than You Find it

Join us for the third installment of Take No Bull Women's Series: Breaking Barriers on Thursday, October 7, 2021 at 12:00 p.m.

Be inspired by keynote speaker Lee Ann Nance as she shares the many barriers she has broken to leave a legacy of leaving things better than she found them.

 Lunch options have closed.

Building on her years of experience as an executive in marketing, business consulting and economic development roles, Lee Anne Nance serves as Chief Operating Officer (COO) for Stewart, a North Carolina-based interdisciplinary design, engineering and planning firm with more than 200 employees. As COO, and the first woman to serve on Stewart’s executive team, she is responsible for developing and implementing business strategies, plans and procedures and setting comprehensive goals for the firm’s growth and success. Lee Anne plays an essential role in the company’s concerted commitment to diversity, equity and inclusion, which is a vital part of the company’s core values and opens doors for opportunity, innovation and creative collaboration.

As a devoted mother, wife and female leader in traditionally male-dominated industries, Lee Anne has continued to excel and grow in her career by treating anyone and everyone with respect—and insisting it is reciprocated, not just for her but for all. She believes mutual respect and a willingness to achieve the best possible outcome, combined with open and honest communication, can overcome nearly any obstacle, challenge or misconception.

Lee Anne’s life philosophy to “leave it better than I found it,” can be seen in her commitment to her community. In addition to speaking at women’s leadership events, she currently serves on the Board of Directors for the Raleigh Chamber of Commerce and Triangle Commercial Real Estate Women (TCREW) as well as on the strategic planning task force for Raleigh-Durham International Airport (RDU) and the fundraising committee for A Place at the Table, a pay-what-you-can cafe in downtown Raleigh. Most recently, she was recognized as a dynamic and outstanding leader in business by Triangle Business Journal’s 2020 Women in Business Awards.
