Executive Director and Chief of Staff at Estée Lauder Companies (ELC), Crystal’s passion for people, promoting DEI, and building community is at the core of everything she does. She currently serves as Global Advisor, and previously Co-Chair, of ELC’s Black employee resource group NOBLE, the Network of Black Leaders and Executives. Under her leadership, NOBLE’s membership doubled with new chapters created in Los Angeles, Travel Retail, Brazil, and expansion plans into EMEA. She’s led several campaigns, events, and partnerships including one of the company’s most successful employee giving campaigns. NOBLE has become a critical voice at ELC for Black talent and consumers, often partnering with brands to ensure authentic representation, and contributing to ELC’s racial equity commitments with programs like From Every Chair- a Leadership program designed to give Black talent equitable access to sponsorship, mentorship, and leadership training. In the inaugural year of the program, 30% of participants experienced career mobility during and after the program.
