William E. Lee Jr. serves as a Consultant for Pope Consulting although he got his start as an accountant. During his time at Abbott Laboratories, he was named Program Manager for Consulting Pairs®, a Pope-led initiative.

Completing our signature 13-day training with each new cohort of change agents that matriculated through Consulting Pairs® helped him become a subject matter expert in diversity and inclusion and an effective facilitator. He credits this experience with giving him the ability to effectively coach for all levels of employees – from the production floor to the executive suite.

During his time at Abbott, William became the youngest person to win its HR Manager of the Year award, eventually being tasked with corporate-wide diversity initiative responsibilities.

He draws from this experience to assist our corporate clients in their efforts to become a more diverse workplace.

He holds a bachelor of science in accounting from Florida A&M University.
