New Mexico State University’s Interdisciplinary Studies Department and Gender Studies Program is cosponsoring a presentation featuring Valerie Jarrett, former senior adviser to President Barack Obama, from 6–8 p.m. Monday, Oct. 1 at the NMSU College of Health and Social Services Auditorium, Room 101A.

Valerie Jarrett served as the senior adviser to Obama and assistant to the president for public engagement and intergovernmental affairs from 2009 to 2017.

Interdisciplinary Studies’ partners in the presentation are the United State of Women Organization and the USOW Galvanize New Mexico Host Committee. Local New Mexico leaders will also attend the Women’s Leadership Salon.

The United State of Women, a nonprofit located in Washington, D.C., is hosting this program in cities across the country as a way to connect women in communities to help them learn from one another and address important issues in their surrounding areas.

“We in the Las Cruces region are fortunate to be selected as a host site to hear from an internationally known leader, Valerie Jarrett, a woman who has served as a role model and leader for women’s equality across decades at a time when women continue to encounter barriers, personally and professionally in our nation,” said Patti Wojahn, department head of interdisciplinary studies.

This October 1st event in Las Cruces is a prelude to the statewide meeting "Galvanize New Mexico” being held in Albuquerque on Dec. 1, 2018.
