Cathy Nestrick is the Co-Host of Parity Podcast where she is building a community of like-minded women and men to achieve workplace parity through their signature "Parity Prescription."

Cathy is a frequent speaker on topics such as gender equality, how to build inclusive cultures, recognizing unconscious bias, and the importance of male allies.

Berry Global is a publicly-traded Fortune 500 global manufacturer and marketer of plastic packaging products headquartered in Evansville, Indiana. A community leader, Cathy has served on 10 different non-profit boards as a volunteer co-chair or President.
