May 14: First Partner Jennifer Siebel Newsom, 2019 Scholarship Awards

Scholarship Honorees

First Partner Jennifer Siebel Newsom, the documentary filmmaker and wife of Gov. Gavin Newsom, will speak at the Sacramento Press Club's May luncheon. The Press Club will also present the student recipients of its 2019 scholarships.

Siebel Newsom
Jennifer Siebel Newsom is an award-winning filmmaker, advocate, and founder of the nonprofit organization The Representation Project, which inspires individuals and communities to challenge limiting gender stereotypes and shift norms.

After graduating with honors from Stanford University and Stanford’s Graduate School of Business, Jennifer worked in Africa and Latin America, helping women entrepreneurs create their own socially and environmentally responsible businesses. She then moved to Hollywood to pursue acting and producing.

Dismayed by the way women were represented both in front of and behind the camera, Jennifer decided to rewrite this story and wrote, directed, and produced the award-winning documentary film “Miss Representation.” Released in 2011, the film exposes how the misrepresentation of women in the media contributes to the underrepresentation of women in positions of power and influence in America, and challenges the media’s limited and often disparaging portrayals of women and girls. In response to the film’s powerful impact, Jennifer launched The Representation Project.

Jennifer’s second film, “The Mask You Live In,” made its world premiere in 2015 and explores how our culture’s narrow definition of masculinity is harming boys, men, and society at large. She is currently wrapping up her third film, “The Great American Lie.”

Jennifer was proudly appointed to be a member of the Women’s Suffrage Centennial Commission and also serves on the advisory boards for The Imagine Bus Project, The Common Sense Media Gender Initiative, and Emerge America. She and her husband Governor Gavin Newsom are the proud parents to their four young children and greatest achievements – Montana, Hunter, Brooklynn, and Dutch.
