Every other year, we host the gala to give companies the opportunity to celebrate the enormous benefit of gender diversity. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we postponed our 2020 gala, and this year, the gala will be held in person, but we will take every precaution to ensure the safety and comfort of our guests. We will comply with the recommendations of the CDC and the New Jersey Department of Health. Proof of vaccination will be required for attendance.
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.
