The Secret to Corporate Growth and Organizational Profitability: Becoming an Ally

Schreiber Institute for Women’s Leadership invites women—and men—to discover the power of allyship in realizing organizational goals with two-day event.

Green Bay, Wis.—It’s easy to say you and your organization are committed to addressing the workplace gender equity gap that exists everywhere, including Northeast Wisconsin. Doing something about it takes intentionality and learning how to be an ally to those around you, according to Gender Strategist (and Wisconsin native) Jeffery Tobias Halter. Halter, a 30-year corporate leader, author, consultant and President of YWomen is the keynote speaker at the Schreiber Institute for Women’s Leadership Celebrate 2024 events on May 16 and 17, 2024 at the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay.

“This year, the Institute is expanding its annual Celebrate event to two days and is being more intentional than ever in addressing the gender leadership gap,” says Institute Executive Director Pa Lee Moua. “We’re inviting men from the region to be in the room with their women colleagues to learn together about strategies to accelerate organizational growth, equity and profitability.”

Day one is an evening of connection, learning and inspiration: Celebrate 2024: Why Women, Why Now, on Thursday, May 16, 4-8 p.m. at The Weidner. Women from across the region and those who mentor and supervise them—including men—are encouraged to attend the event. For more info on our event and to hear a welcome from Jeffery click here.

According to Halter, male advocacy is one of the most important elements to driving long-term systemic change in organizations. His keynote Engaging All Allies: Moving from Awareness to Advocacy will be a call to action for transformational change towards more inclusive leadership and organizational success.

“During these events, attendees will connect with other amazing leaders at every continuum in the leadership pipeline,” says Moua. “Attendees leave feeling energized and supported as they continue their own leadership journey and the journey for those they lead.”

Cost for the evening is $50 per person. Members receive a 25% discount, and UW-Green Bay faculty, staff and students attend for free. To learn more about the Celebrate 2024 event, please visit the website at

Day two is a deeper dive into gender and cultural differences in the workplace, and how to make a plan to support attendees’ and their team members’ advancements: Creating Your Personal Success for Advancement Workshop on Friday, May 17 9-10:30 a.m. at The Weidner. In this workshop, Tobias will lead an interactive discussion and strategy session that will delve into the differences of how men and women define and value leadership competencies.
