GET TO KNOW: ROMY NEWMAN & FAIRYGODBOSS
WHAT IS FAIRYGODBOSS?

WHO IS ROMY NEWMAN?

Fairygodboss is a marketplace where professional women looking for jobs, advice, and the
inside scoop on companies meet employers who
believe in gender equality. Reaching hundreds
of thousands of women, the Fairygodboss
community crowdsources hard-to-find and
hard-to-ask information from each other ranging
from maternity leave policies, to corporate
culture around pay and promotion for women.
Fairygodboss works with Fortune 500 employers
such as Apple Dell, Deloitte, General Electric
and Johnson & Johnson to create transparency
about workplaces and to support their efforts
to improve the workplace for women.

Ro m y Ne w m a n i s p re s i d e n t a n d
co-founder of Fairygodboss. Before founding Fairygodboss, Romy was with the
Wall Street Journal for seven years in sales
and operations, last holding the title of
Head of Digital Advertising. Earlier in
her career, she held marketing positions
at Google and Estee Lauder. A graduate of
Yale and Northwestern's Kellogg School of
Management, she's a frequent contributor
to Fortune, Huffington Post, and Inc. Romy
holds a B.A. in American Studies from Yale
University and an M.B.A. from the Kellogg
School of Business at Northwestern University.
She is also a proud mother of two, wife to a
very supportive husband, devoted yogi and
crossword puzzle lover.

It's a real life, professional version of your
fairy godmother: getting you the scoop on
what you need to know to be a success at
home and at work. It's a safe space for women
to share workplace experience, advice, and
support on topics that are important to them.

WHAT MOTIVATES ROMY?
Romy is motivated by helping other women
have the same fantastic career experiences

- supported by both great female and male
colleagues - that she has had. She strives to
make the workplace work better for women.

WHAT MAKES FAIRYGODBOSS
SO NECESSARY?
"When we've conducted interviews with
Fairygodboss members, we hear constantly
how isolated they feel as women in the workplace," says Newman. Fairygodboss found
that 65 percent of women they surveyed felt
uncomfortable asking about benefits like
maternity leave during interviews, and may not
even fully understand their employer's policy
before signing an offer letter. Transparency
about any companies' policies and culture is
key for any improvements in the workplace
for women. Whether you're a job seeker or
looking to negotiate better things for yourself
or the women around you, you might need
knowledge and advice to feel confident about
your decisions.
