CHICAGO, July 11, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Obama Foundation's Senior Advisor Valerie Jarrett will share her journey toward finding her voice on August 1 at Network of Executive Women's 14th Annual NEW Executive Forum 2019. More than 300 executive level leaders from various industries will come together at the conference to examine ways to reframe the conversation around gender equality.
This year's theme – Reframe: Our power. On purpose. For progress. – will inspire leaders to harness their personal power, reaffirm the importance of collective accountability and work on continued progress over perfection. Forum attendees will gather at the Omni Amelia Island Resort in Florida July 30-August 1, 2019.
"My predecessors who helped found NEW and its mission left big shoes to fill; the organization I now lead has more than 13,000 members, 22 regions, 925 companies – and is still growing in its ability to transform the careers of our partners," said Sarah Alter, CEO at NEW.
"In the past two years as CEO, I have reframed aspects of NEW to expand how we advance all women. My aim for this year's Forum is to encourage guests to consider how reframing their lives, careers and their business leadership values can make an impact on gender equality, diversity and inclusion within their companies," said Alter.
Called "the ultimate Obama insider" by the New York Times, Jarrett will discuss her journey as a daughter, mother, lawyer, businessperson, public servant and leader in government at a historic moment in American history.
