Chrystal R. Joy joined The Lee Institute in June 2013 as Director. Prior to joining the Lee team, Chrystal spent more than nine years leading a number of enterprise-wide organizational development initiatives at Time Warner Cable including management of the VP women’s leadership development program, the 360 degree feedback and executive coaching processes, and the performance management process. She also provided consulting to enterprise leaders on team building, leader assimilation/integration, assessments and training, and aided in the inception of the inaugural Time Warner Cable Diversity Council in 2005.

Prior to Time Warner Cable, Chrystal spent four years as a HR Generalist at a smaller cable operator in Charlotte. In this role, she was active in leading the change management efforts during the organization’s merger-acquisition in 2003.

In additional to her work in the for-profit sector, Chrystal is active in non-profit. She has served as a Board member on the Diversity Council of the Carolinas and The Possibility Project – Charlotte, both affording her the opportunity to work in areas where she finds passion in inclusion, leadership development and working with children.

A native of Anderson, South Carolina, Chrystal moved to Charlotte after earning a Bachelor’s Degree in Psychology from Winthrop University. She later also earned a Master’s Degree in Human Resource Management from Keller University of DeVry. Chrystal loves spending time with her husband and two small children, and enjoys music, vacations and connecting with family and friends.
