Laurene Powell Jobs may be best known to Apple fans as Steve Jobs’ widow but, as a longtime philanthropist with decades of experience, she’s carved out an impressive solo career.

Having kept a fairly low profile since her husband’s death in 2011, next month Powell Jobs will speak at the Code Conference about her approach to philanthropy. Her appearance will take the form of an unscripted onstage conversation.
