About the Event
Join the East Bay Leadership Council as we kickoff the 2022 East Bay Leadership Series with an online event featuring one of the most highly accomplished public figures in America today, Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch.
Described by President Obama as "the only lawyer in America who battles mobsters, drug lords and terrorists, and still has the reputation for being a charming 'people person," Lynch has been instrumental in shaping the direction of the nation on a number of tough issues.
Through her live remarks and Q&A we will discuss her perspectives on the most pressing issues facing our nation and businesses today including protecting our national security, ensuring election integrity, strengthening communities, and insights into effective leadership.
The live online discussion will be moderated by Ann Notarangelo with a chance to ask your questions.
About Loretta Lynch
Former Attorney General Loretta Lynch has been a leading progressive voice during her 30+ year highly distinguished career. She is the first female African American Attorney General of the United States, appointed by President Barack Obama in 2015. She also served as the head of the U.S. Attorney's Office for the Eastern District of New York twice, under both President Clinton and President Obama.
She improved the relationship between local law enforcement and the communities they serve, and she has taken bold stances on criminal justice reform.
Lynch has spent years in the trenches rising through the ranks as a prosecutor, aggressively fighting terrorism, financial fraud and cybercrime -- all while vigorously defending civil and human rights around the world.
Born in Greensboro, NC, the daughter of a school librarian and fourth generation Baptist minister, Lynch was also inspired by stories about her grandfather, a sharecropper in the 1930s, who helped members of his community who had no recourse under the Jim Crow system.
