At-Large Council Member
Nicole Stewart was elected as an at-large member of the Raleigh City Council in 2017.
After graduating from the University of North Carolina at Wilmington with a degree in environmental studies, Nicole went to work as an organizer and is now the Development Director for the North Carolina Conservation Network. NC Conservation Network is a statewide network of nearly 100 environmental, community, and environmental justice organizations focused on protecting North Carolina’s environment and public health. Nicole also co-founded The Beehive Collective, which has given away more than $150,000 in nine years to Raleigh-based nonprofits. The Beehive is also dedicated to promoting and uplifting women leaders in our community by offering leadership opportunities. The Beehive Collective's annual grants have funded projects including those that champion women and immigrants, improve access to transportation and affordable housing, and provide needed health care to Raleigh's underserved youth.
