We invite you for a discussion with alumna Kathryn Bertine '00 as she shares how leadership, activism and moving forward with purpose has shaped her career.
Bertine is an author, athlete, activist and documentary filmmaker. As a professional cyclist, she raced five years on the pro circuit for UCI World Tour teams. Off the bike, she is a journalist, author of four nonfiction books, and an award-winning documentary flimmaker for "Half the Road."
As an advocate for equality in women’s sports, Bertine and her activism team, Le Tour Entier, succeeded in petitioning the Tour de France for women’s inclusion and constructing La Course by Tour de France in 2014. In 2017, she founded and now serves as CEO for Homestretch Foundation, a nonprofit which provides free housing to female professional athletes struggling with the gender pay gap (and fights to change the system).
