Jennifer Siebel Newsom
Jennifer Siebel Newsom is a filmmaker, CEO, advocate, and thought leader. After graduating with honors from Stanford University and Stanford’s Graduate School of Business, she wrote, directed, and produced the 2011 award-winning documentary "Miss Representation." As a result of the powerful impact of "Miss Representation," she launched The Representation Project, a nonprofit organization that uses film and media as catalysts for cultural transformation. Her second film as a director, "The Mask You Live In," had its world premiere at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival and explores how America’s narrow definition of masculinity is harming boys, men, and society at large. She also executive produced the Emmy Award-Winning and Academy Award-Nominated documentary "The Invisible War," and is an executive producer on the documentary "The Hunting Ground." She is currently in production on her third film, "The Great American Dream." When she is not running The Representation Project and making documentaries, she serves as a co-chair of We Day California, on the Advisory Council for the Imagine Kids Bus Project, and is a former member of the Global Advisory Board of the Dove Self Esteem Project and the Girl Scouts’ Healthy Media Commission. She resides in the San Francisco Bay Area with her husband, California Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom, and their four young children.
