She Shares Conversation with three Women from the Capitol in Governor Newsom Administration.She Shares on June 20th at the Sheraton Hotel, featured the top three women in Governor Newsom’s administration; Chief of Staff Ann O’Leary, Cabinet Secretary Ana Matosantos, and Legal Affairs Secretary Catherine Lhamon. Each of them has an incredible resume of working for President’s, Vice President’s, Presidential Candidates and different Governor’s. They shared their stories of how they got where they are today and what inspires them to be public servants. It was a candid conversation with women who don’t usually share their stories. Monica Lozano, seasoned journalist and CEO of the College Futures Foundation, moderated it. She Shares is in its 8th season.
