UFSC Richmond Member Gets Selected for Renowned Leadership Program
Minority representation in Richmond’s financial services takes another leap as UFSC’s Norma Lee qualifies for The Leadership Quest
The Urban Financial Services Coalition Richmond Chapter has championed minority representation in the metropolitan’s financial services sector for over three decades. This year, Norma N. Lee, the coalition’s former vice president and a well-established financial professional, has been selected for the renowned Leadership Metro Richmond – The Leadership Quest program. The selection is based on Lee’s exceptional career and unmatched leadership in youth development through the UFSC MARK I Leadership Program. The coalition has had many notable members from the Richmond financial services sector representing it at The Leadership Quest program, including Adrienne Whitaker, Steven McCarther, Bernadette Bannister, and Lisa Rowe-Higginbottom, to name a few. Lee’s selection serves as a testimony to UFSC’s member’s commitment to professional development and career elevation in Richmond’s financial services and allied business sectors.
Commenting on her selection for The Leadership Quest 2021, Darrell Tyler, the President of UFSC Richmond Chapter, said, “UFSC beams with pride to hear that Norma is continuing to deepen her leadership skills. The LMR program will allow her to take her leadership to the next level. At the same time, she is also working to solve real-world programs within the Metro Richmond Region.”
Norma N. Lee is a professional with over 10 years in the legal/financial industry and over 20 years in the business of empowering individuals through various different roles. With a background in education, she has an undergraduate and graduate degree from Howard University and a graduate degree from Virginia Commonwealth University. Norma is passionate about giving back to her community through various professional associations, Girls Scouts, Junior Missionaries and her church, Fifth Street Baptist Church.
When Norma is not empowering her community, she works at Lee Law Office as a Marketing Director. Lee Law Office provides estate planning, elder law and estate administration services to clients in Richmond, Virginia and surrounding areas. The aim of Lee Law Office is to help people avoid substantial financial loss due to the myths and misconceptions they have about elder law and estate planning.
The Leadership Quest, which is a ten-month-long program, begins in September 2021. Based on monthly classes and events, this event aims at developing a deeper understanding of the grassroots problems in the Richmond metropolitan and prepare leaders to find and implement solutions for the same. Leadership is a fundamental element of real-world problem-solving. There is no tool more powerful than the community to uproot the roadblocks in its development and uplift.
Uplifting minority communities in Richmond by enabling minority professionals and youth to train and excel in the financial services sector are UFSC’s primary objectives. This not-for-profit organization brings together the finest minority professionals in the Richmond metropolitan’s financial industry to provide educational, technical, and advisory assistance to communities of color. With friends and former employees like Norma N. Lee leading from the front, UFSC is sure to redefine minority leadership in the country’s financial sector.
