Ladies, Let’s Get In Formation: The Power of Women In Leadership

We hold this truth to be self-evident: The world is better when women are in positions of power, able to make decisions, control resources and shape policies in their workplaces and communities. Women bring fresh perspectives, different priorities and a wider lens that can positively impact all our lives.

Across New Jersey, we’ve seen exceptional women leaders stepping into positions of power in Newark, Trenton and beyond. Join Women@NJPAC for a conversation about leadership, equity, equality, how much progress we’ve made — and how much work there still is to do.
