About EWNJ

Founded in 1980, EWNJ is the leading senior-level executive women’s organization that is committed to increasing the presence of women serving on corporate boards and in the top leadership of New Jersey companies. To this end, we publish a biennial report, in partnership with PwC, on the number of women on boards and in the senior governance of publicly traded companies in New Jersey. This report is the only one of its kind in the state.

We also host an array of events designed to offer women executives prime networking opportunities, to bolster and amplify our gender diversity advocacy efforts, and to raise funds for our Graduate Merit Award Program, which is focused on establishing a pipeline of future leaders. As the largest provider of scholarships to non-traditional women graduate students in New Jersey, we are proud to have awarded over $1.2 million to deserving candidates over the last 30 years.

On October 29, 2015, EWNJ hosted A Seat at the Table, our biennial gender diversity awards and networking breakfast with keynote speaker Susan Story of American Water. Check out the media coverage at NJBIZ (media sponsor), Home News Tribune, NJ Spotlight, My9NJ, and NJTV

This year’s breakfast also featured the exclusive release of the “A Seat at the Table: Celebrating Women and Board Leadership” report, which outlines some shocking gender disparities on the corporate boards of New Jersey and, to a greater extent, American companies.
