Celebrating 40 years of advancing women’s leadership!


Salute to the Policy Makers

The Salute to the Policy Makers Gala brings together New Jersey’s most prominent leaders to celebrate high-achieving women trailblazers in business, academia, and the public sector. We’ve recognized over 300 women, directly disproving the myth that there are not enough qualified women to assume senior roles in corporate spaces and on boards.

Every other year, we host the gala to give companies the opportunity to celebrate the enormous benefit of gender diversity. Our biennial report on gender diversity proves that, along with stronger financial performance, companies with more women on their boards have fewer governance-related issues such as bribery, corruption, shareholder battles, and fraud.

New generations of women leaders

Most importantly, Salute raises funds for the EWNJ Graduate Merit Award Program, which is focused on creating new generations of women leaders. Since inception, our Graduate Merit Award Program has provided over $1.3 million in tuition assistance
