Virtual Programming: Jennifer Palmieri inspires women to take action and shatter the glass ceiling with her empowering and optimistic feminist guide She Proclaims: Our Declaration of Independence From a Man's World

Political communications strategist JENNIFER PALMIERI has written She Proclaims, a follow up to her #1 NYT bestselling book Dear Madam President.  Where her first book introduced a blueprint to succeed and the tools to prosper, She Proclaims gives readers the advice they need to to step out of a man's world and into their own. Palmieri celebrates the accomplishments and history of the women's movement, and inspires audiences to be subversive, courageous, and live boldly beyond the bounds of patriarchy. Through personal reflections and stories of other inspirational female leaders, Palmeri shares the key lessons she's learned from her journey to success. A shrewd political strategist with fresh insights on the presidency and elections, she has been a leading commentator on election primaries and voter mindset, from MSNBC to The Atlantic to Today.

A fantastic virtual event programming idea in this political year is to pair Palmieri's remarks with a book signing of She Proclaims. It is technically easy to digitally queue guests up in a book signing line and give them a few minutes in conversation with the author, who then personalizes inscriptions on books or bookplates to be mailed to each participant after the event. Some hosts are finding that mailing the book in advance to participants merges the tangible with the intangible and generates anticipatory buzz for their event. Audiences consistently praise Palmieri with comments such as: Jennifer's speech was funny and inspiring. She gave our crowd exactly what they were looking for - men included. (Hoosier Women Forward)
