The California Women's Conference

Learn about the California Women's Conference and watch First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden's remarks at the Conference, in which they addressed issues of concern to women and families, with a special look at military families.

Today, First Lady Michelle Obama and Dr. Jill Biden will speak at the California Women’s Conference 2010, hosted by California First Lady Maria Shriver and Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger. The annual Women’s Conference inspires, empowers and educates women to be Architects of Change in their own lives and in the lives of others.

Last year, I was honored to attend the event where Valerie Jarrett participated in parts of the Conference’s A Woman's Nation: The Status of the American Woman panel. There she represented the Council on Women and Girls and discussed our efforts to improve workplace flexibility both in the federal government and the private sector.

We are excited that the Administration can be a part of this important event again and we encourage you to participate as well! 

You can learn more by reading First Lady Michelle Obama’s remarks as well as Dr. Jill Biden’s remarks or watching the video below.
