WHO WE ARE

Leadership

In 2020, First Partner Jennifer Siebel Newsom helped launch the California Partners Project (CPP) as an independent 501(c)(4) not-for-profit organization to fully realize her commitment to educating and connecting individuals and groups for collective progress. 

Through 2021, CPP is focused on two specific goals concerning gender equity and child wellbeing: successfully increasing women’s representation on the boards of public corporations headquartered in California, and research and education around children’s mental health as impacted by the fallout of a global pandemic, and increased use of media and technology.
