Keynote Speaker: Ferial Govashiri
Former Personal Aide to President Barack Obama
Chief of Staff to Chief Content Officer at Netflix
Tiny Cracks: Breaking the Glass Ceiling
As a young Iranian-American woman, Ferial Govashiri was a Washington game changer. As one of the few people to work alongside President Obama on a daily basis, she provides a unique perspective on how women can be successful and achieve positions that have been traditionally dominated by men. Govashiri shares her three rules to success: never cry, never run, and never raise your voice. She also expands on themes such as the power of confidence, determination and risk-taking in decision-making. Her extraordinary stories from behind the scenes of the nation’s most powerful office provide impactful takeaways and inspire women from all walks of life to take their careers to the next level.

The Stockton Women’s Leadership Council (SWLC) – a Stockton University Foundation initiative – is dedicated to the empowerment of women and seeks to promote networking among women and the community. The SWLC offers a platform for professionals to build relationships, discuss issues related to women, engage in mentorship opportunities, and explore ways that relevant program events and leadership development opportunities can be supported by enhanced philanthropy. Through the Council’s initiatives, faculty, staff, alumnae, friends and students will create a tradition of female leadership that will have a sustainable impact at Stockton University and across our region.
