EWNJ in the News

EWNJ recently partnered with BoardSuited to prepare women executives to assume board seats and increase representation in various board service positions. The BoardSuited program, founded by Joyce Brocaglia, will be hosted on a digital platform and it is in line with our goal to support and empower women executives, even through the pandemic. ROI-NJ covered the story.

A Seat at the Table

The report, which is the only one of its kind in the state, was released at our biennial A Seat at the Table Corporate Gender Diversity Awards Breakfast at the APA Hotel Woodbridge in Iselin. The key findings of the report, “A Seat at the Table: Celebrating Women & Board Leadership,” were also presented at the breakfast, which was attended by more than 200 top executives.
