Valerie B. Jarrett Speaking Topics

  • Where Do We Go From Here?

    The 2016 Presidential election stunned the country and the world. Many are trying to make sense of how such an unlikely candidate became the President of the United States. Is our country really more divided than ever? Valerie Jarrett will discuss where we go from here in order to strive for that more perfect union. It is not a time to be apathetic or disengaged. We live in a globally competitive world, but the United States is still the greatest country on earth. Democracy is messy, complicated and diverse. With our country's legacy of triumph and pain, we have always found the grit, determination, and resilience to embrace our individual and collective responsibilities as citizens. When we discover common ground, we move our country forward and whether we like it or not, our future as Americans is inextricably linked.

  • Building a 21st Century Workplace that Reflects the Values and Needs of the 21st Century Worker and Enabling U.S. Businesses to be Globally Competitive

    Women comprise half the work force. They are graduating from college at higher rates than men. 40 percent of working moms are the sole or primary bread winners. However, women still earn 80 cents on the dollar compared to men, while a woman’s contribution to the family income is now more important than ever. Why equal pay, workplace flexibility, paid leave, paid sick days, affordable child care, and a decent minimum wage are not only good for working families, they are imperative to running a business.

  • What it is Like to Be in the Room Where it Happens

    Valerie Jarrett was the longest serving senior advisor to President Barack Obama. She joined the White House team on January 20, 2009 and departed with the First Family on January 20, 2017. Sharing her experiences, Valerie will discuss what she learned from the challenges of leading the greatest country on earth.

  • Put Yourself in the Path of Lightening

    Early in her career, Valerie Jarrett was painfully shy and lacked the confidence to speak up for herself or take risks because of her fear of failure or rejection. In this speech, Valerie will discuss how she found her voice, learned to enjoy sharing it, and the skills she developed along the way.
