The WBA invites you to attend our Gender Equity Week Keynote, How to Be a Gender Equality Superhero, on Tuesday, March 7th at 12:15 PM featuring Kellogg alumna Romy Newman, Chief Revenue Officer of Real, a startup working to bring effective, affordable mental health care to more Americans. 

Romy has advocated for gender equality throughout her impressive career of 20+ years in business leadership, including 7 years running a venture-backed startup, Fairygodboss, the largest career community for women. She has 10+ years of experience at major US corporations, including Estée Lauder Companies, Google, and the Wall Street Journal.

In her keynote, she will share more about the business case for gender equality, how to advocate for yourself, how to negotiate compensation, and how to work with allies to advocate for change. We are excited to feature this powerful Keynote address during Gender Equity Week and look forward to welcoming all faculty, staff, administration, Kellogg students, and JVs of any gender to attend. 

Lunch will be provided.


Gender Equity Week Theme

The theme of this year’s Gender Equity Week is mobilizing women leaders. Women and other marginalized genders around the world are taking the lead to shape how we all live, work, and advocate for ourselves. In the past year, we’ve seen women around the world advocate for civil liberties and push for what they need at work and beyond. When we mobilize and bring allies along with us, we are unstoppable.
