During this recorded presentation, Nadya will discuss understanding Generation z and Gen z values.

Nadya Okamoto founded PERIOD when she was 16-years-old, inspired by her family’s own experience with housing instability. She is now 22-year-old and a rising senior at Harvard College. Nadya recently published her debut book, Period Power: A Manifesto for the Menstrual Movement with publisher Simon & Schuster, which made the Kirkus Reviews list for Best Young Adult Nonfiction of 2018. For her leadership of PERIOD, she is included in the latest cohorts of Forbes 30 under 30Bloomberg 50 “Ones to Watch” and People Magazine's Women Changing the World

In 2017, Nadya ran for public office in Cambridge, MA at age 19 — becoming the youngest Asian American to run in US history. Nadya is also the Chief Brand Officer of JUV Consulting, a Generation Z marketing agency based in NYC.
