Why Women Should Rule the World

As women have played an increasingly important role in politics, there is no question that they’ve brought a different perspective, focusing attention on a broader set of issues and building alliances with other women. Former Vice Presidential Candidate and U.S. Representative Geraldine Ferraro once said, “women raise issues that others overlook, pass bills that others oppose, invest in projects that others dismiss, and seek to end abuses that others ignore“. Given the scope of challenges we face, there’s no question that this kind of expansive mindset is needed now more than ever.

With that in mind, it is our pleasure to be hosting Dee Dee Myers, Senior Advisor to Governor Newsom, on Tuesday, January 25th from 11:00am – 11:45am PST!

Dee Dee Myers brings more than three decades of experience in strategic communications, public affairs, corporate governance and social responsibility in both the public and private sectors. She served as White House Press Secretary during President Bill Clinton’s first term and was the first woman to hold the position. After leaving the White House, she worked as a political analyst, commentator and writer as well as a contributing editor to Vanity Fair. She is the author of The New York Times best-selling book “Why Women Should Rule the World” and served as a consultant on the Emmy Award-winning drama series “The West Wing.”

This roundtable will be the first of our 2022 Women’s Leadership Roundtables Series and we hope you can join us!
