Michelle Obama’s Fireside Chat with Apple

One of the surprise announcements at WWDC 2017 was a conversation coming tomorrow with former First Lady Michelle Obama. It will be in the same building as the keynote—Hall 3— on Tuesday, June 6 from 12-1PM.

Fireside Chat

Tim Cook didn’t give many details about what Michelle will talk about, but it will be about “empowering people from all walks of life to make the world a better place.” Themes like this are what Michelle Obama focused on during her time in the White House.


Some initiatives she launched were Let’s Move!, to address childhood obesity; Joining Forces, to support veterans; Reach Higher, to encourage young people to enter higher education; and Let Girls Learn, to help young girls all around the world to go to school.

If you’re attending WWDC, you can download Apple’s WWDC app from the App Store to find news, directions and videos. Set a reminder for June 6 at 12PM PDT to join A Moderated Conversation with Michelle Obama.

It is a bummer that this wasn’t live cast, I was very much looking forward to watching it. Hopefully it will be available online or via Apple TV.


Pathetic that Cook has to screw up an otherwise positive event by politicizing it with this announcement. Nauseating thud to end the keynote.
