Overview

Keynote Speaker

Mayor Aftab Pureval is the 70th Mayor of the City of Cincinnati. As Mayor, he has made equitable economic growth a top priority of his administration, as well as a comprehensive reform and improvement of public safety, affordable housing, and environmental action. Formerly serving as the first Democrat to be elected Hamilton County Clerk of Courts in over 100 years, he revolutionized the courthouse, ending the nepotism while adding more online services and opening an award-winning Help Center. He paid every employee a living wage of $16 an hour and became the first countywide officeholder in Ohio to offer paid family leave.

Mayor Aftab was born and raised in Southwest Ohio. He attended The Ohio State University and the University of Cincinnati College of Law where he represented victims of domestic violence who could not afford an attorney. He served as a Special Assistant U.S. Attorney and worked as an attorney at Procter & Gamble. Mayor Aftab lives in Clifton with his wife, Whitney, and their son, Bodh.
