Jennifer Siebel Newsom and Gavin Newsom to Discuss Marianne Schnall's, WHAT WILL IT TAKE TO MAKE A WOMAN PRESIDENT?, 12/3
In conjunction with the release of Marianne Schnall's new book on women, leadership and power
SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 2, 2013 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ This Tuesday, Jennifer Siebel Newsom and Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom will sit down for a special conversation on gender equity, leadership and the need for partnership between men and women, in honor of author Marianne Schnall's new book What Will It Take to Make a Woman President?: Conversations About Women, Leadership and Power. Both Newsoms appear in the book, which features interviews with various thought leaders in an attempt to discover the obstacles that hold women back in America.
The private event, moderated by TV host Amanda de Cadenet of The Conversation, will take place at The Matrix in San Francisco. The discussion will also be viewable live on The Conversation's website.
During the evening, Newsom will formally announce a brand refresh for her organization, The Representation Project (formerly known as MissRepresentation.org), which is stepping into a new name and bolder agenda, one that requires all of us working together, girls and boys, women and men, to realize our human potential.
The following day, December 4th, Newsom will expand on the topic during a special session at TEDWomen in San Francisco.
Jennifer Siebel Newsom: "I'm thrilled for the opportunity to discuss alongside my husband, what partnership between men and women needs to looks like - and how it is essential for us to achieve equality in this country."
Gavin Newsom: "Equality among women and men is essential for this country to move forward. It needs to be a cultural shift and one that should happen sooner rather than later. I am proud to sit with my wife and discuss this very important topic."
Marianne Schnall: "The interviews in my book cover many different, interconnected themes impacting men and women in our society today as well as cultural shifts that are needed. I am excited to hear this compelling conversation between Jen and Gavin talking about the topics in the book from their perspectives not only as influential individuals but as committed partners supporting each others' work and raising a family."
