As CEO of the Better Days 2020 non-profit, which popularizes women’s history through education, legislation and the arts, Neylan McBaine combines a Silicon Valley career in brand marketing with her experience in advocating for women.
Since co-founding Better Days 2020, Neylan has become a leader in speaking and writing about women’s leadership and the U.S. suffrage movement, with a specific focus on Utah and the west’s early role in that movement. She has developed a team of historians, educators and marketers that have changed the way Utahns view and understand women’s history, leading to shifts in current perceptions of Utahns generally. As a TEDx presenter, columnist and writer, Neylan has been called a “change agent” and “uniquely important.” She is also the founder of another non-profit, The Mormon Women Project, and the author of the best-selling “Women at Church: Magnifying LDS Women’s Local Impact”. Neylan is a graduate of Yale University, mother to three daughters, and lives in Salt Lake City.
