KATIE-JEYN ROMEYN IN THE MEDIA
On Wednesday, about 300 insurance professionals attended the Women in Insurance Summit Australia 2023 in Sydney. The summit covered issues impacting women and men in the insurance industry including global and local market trends, artificial intelligence (AI) and the work-life balance. The event also focused heavily on what some in the industry are doing – and what more can be done - to tackle tough challenges like the gender pay gap and domestic violence. The day involved a moving keynote address by tennis star and author Jelena Dokic, an engaging presentation from CEO Katie-Jeyn Romeyn about negotiating for better pay, and a thought provoking talk by Stella Insurance CEO Sam White about the industry’s gender issues and what men can do to help and connect with women.

Great debate to put gender diversity under spotlight Gold Industry Group, 17 November 2017
Tonight, the Gold Industry Group will host its second Women in Gold Sundowner at The Perth Mint in conjunction with Women in Mining WA, this year putting diversity under the spotlight with a great debate in front of more than 300 guests. Career Acceleration Expert and Author Katie-Jeyn Romeyn and Breanna Cameron, will be opposing - Edith Cowan University (BEng), Production Mining Operative (opposing).
Thanks for the support of Catherine Fox, whose book Stop Fixing Women, is the inspiration for this event.
However, Romeyn countered that 50:50 wasn't the same as zero harm given that organisations that had achieved gender parity still had reports of harassment and discrimination... Romeyn also said everyone in the industry contributed to sweeping the issue of diversity under the carpet, and women couldn't afford to wait for a "white knight" to come in and fix the problem.
Some years ago, I was impressed to see a young woman, Katie-Jeyn Romeyn, accept an award from the WGEA for her work bridging the gender pay gap at listed gold mining company, St Barbara. The results were outstanding. Having interviewed Romeyn for my last book, I was interested in finding out whether she thought other sectors had begun to realise they needed to address the pay gap and how to go about it.
Gold miner St Barbara has been recognised for its commitment to gender diversity largely through its success in bridging the gender pay divide..... Under former executive general manager, people and business services Katie-Jeyn Romeyn, St Barbara's leadership group developed and implemented a remuneration strategy that between 2007 and 2010 effectively cut the this pay divide in half...
Ms Romeyn said that in the last five years, in particular, she saw large developments in family-friendly work policies in mining.... 'And one of the keys to outperform and innovate, and win in business, is to embrace diversity'.
Helping to place St Barbara on the WGEA list of employers of choice is Katie-Jeyn Romeyn, the gold producer’s own pay equity expert who successfully reduced the pay gap between its male and female employees from 43% in 2007 to 11.4% in 2014.
