Romy Newman: Social Entrepreneur – Empowering Careers of Women

In this episode of OutBüro Voices featuring LGBTQ professionals, entrepreneurs, and community leaders from around the world, host Dennis Velco chats with Romy Newman a social entrepreneur with a focus on advancing workplace gender equality, career opportunities for women, and corporate transparency.   

Romy brings a long and rich career background in marketing and business development to Fairygodboss.  Co-founded with Georgene Huang, Fairygodboss is a community network centered on career women, employer branding, and job marketplace aiding employers to reach the female demographic supporting their workplace equality strategy.  Women may anonymously rate recent past and current employers.  This provides insights for the employer on how they are doing while providing the female job seeker employer information not found anywhere else so she may make an informed decision if the employer has the benefits and policies that will allow her to thrive as a valued employee team member.    In our casual conversation Romy shares how the idea for Fairgodboss was sparked and how she and co-founder Georgene leverage each of their skills that have resulted as of Feb 2021 to a community of over 2 million members supported by 50 staff at Fairygodboss.   

We discussed challenges and opportunities presented in the workplace due to COVID.
