@robinhoodnyc does incredible work as NYC’s largest poverty-fighting organization.
Thrilled to join these Champions on stage last night at the Robin Hood Benefit. Thank you to all who gave generously!

In 2006, my sweet mom and I attended Tony Bennett’s 80th birthday bash. My mom had the night of her life meeting Tony & his wife, @dianakrall, and Bruce Willis.
I had a wonderful time because she was so happy. This was her last trip to NY. Happy Mother’s Day, mom. ❤️ #happymothersday #missyoumom #momandme

Congratulations to our nephew, Josh Blackman, on his graduation from @rutgersu.
Oh, the places you’ll go! 👨🏻‍🎓 #proudaunts #graduation #graduationday #friyay

‪Mr. Bamrick was my 6th grade teacher. He taught me to believe in myself, and gave me the confidence I needed to speak in front of the class, which became the foundation for what I do today.

Thank you to all the teachers who give their students the wings to fly.

Hanging out with Joe Louis, who was my dad’s favorite boxer.

Every so often, I’m fortunate to meet a disrupter, someone who takes the status quo, turns it on its head, and changes the world for the better.

Dr. Michael Crow, innovator, visionary, and President of @arizonastateuniversity is such a person.
He has committed the university to social change, global engagement, and record levels of diversity in the student body. He is flipping the script on learning, athletics, access, and inclusion. Read the school charter and you will see what this champion of change is up to.

‪This week, Scotty Deeds, one of my coaches @calstatela, passed away.
An equality champion ahead of his time, Scotty and Dr. Joan Johnson practiced the men’s and women’s tennis teams together.
I will miss you, Scotty.

Honored to have had April 12, 2018 proclaimed Billie Jean King Day in San Francisco by Mayor Mark Farrell.
Thank you to @katekendell and to all who helped raise funds for @nclrights last night.

It’s a great day at work when your racquet comes with you.

It’s Equal Pay Day, and I’m thrilled to announce that my friends, @serenawilliams and @venuswilliams have joined the advisory board of the Billie Jean King Leadership Initiative to advance the organization’s mission of workplace equality and inclusion for all.

I had such a wonderful time yesterday at Fairfield County Community Foundation’s Annual Luncheon for Women and Girls.

Generous members of the community raised $160K for women and girls seeking economic security and for STEM programs.

Thank you, Greenwich, CT!
