Valerie Jarrett

Valerie Jarrett served for eight years as a senior advisor to President Barack Obama. In her New York Times bestselling book “Finding My Voice: My Journey to the West Wing and the Path Forward,” Valerie recounts her early life and later experiences in the White House.

In July 1991, Valerie interviewed a promising young lawyer named Michelle Robinson for a role in Chicago city government. At the time, neither of them knew that it was their first step on a path towards the White House.

In this episode, you’ll hear from Valerie about her time in the Obama Administration and her remarkable journey with finding her voice through her work — from ensuring equality for women and girls, advancing civil rights, reforming our criminal justice system and improving the lives of working families.
