Jackie Norris – The Possibilities Are Endless


We’re pleased to announce that Jackie Norris, American political aide, educator, and corporate strategist, will be our Chrysalis Conversations speaker on Wednesday, March 28, 2018. Throughout her career, Jackie Norris has been deeply involved in women’s causes. Her years of experience in academia, politics, public service, and volunteerism have included positions in the classroom (teaching high school government), the White House (serving as chief of staff for Michelle Obama), and on the soccer field (coaching her son’s team). Ms. Norris chronicled her professional experience as 2009 Chrysalis INSPIRED Event keynote speaker, and will share a glimpse of the vastly different experiences that have helped her to weave passion with profession and have enabled her even more “possibilities.”
