JERSEY CITY, NJ (February 28, 2017) – Today Dr. Sue Henderson, President of NJCU, announced that the University’s newly launched School of Business, will host One World: Empowering Women for the Global Conversation with JPMorgan Chase & Co. as the lead sponsor.
The new, innovative event will be hosted at the University’s Hudson River waterfront Harborside location of the Mack-Cali complex in Jersey City, May 17 – May 19. Three hundred and fifty businesswomen from the tristate area are scheduled to attend to explore Womenomics: Making the Case for Women in the Workforce. Participants will learn from iconic leaders how financial access, healthcare, education, leadership and entrepreneurship are shaping the future roles of women in the global economy.
One World is an outgrowth of the international network built by Dr. Henderson and Daryl Rand, Chairman of Friends of India: USA, Inc. through a decade of trade missions to India to foster the cultural exchange of ideas and best practices.
Dr. Henderson noted, “The One World conference presents an opportunity for a timely discussion on global equality. As the first female President at New Jersey City University, I know firsthand the importance of sharing experiences, insights, resources and opportunities that will help to inform how we progress in our professional and personal lives.”
She added, “This is also a goal for the University community and for the greater community, both domestic and abroad, which the institution serves. We are honored to host this global conversation, and look forward to doing so on the Jersey City waterfront at our School of Business.”
Daryl Rand and the HarrisonRand team, the Hudson County, NJ based marketing and communications company and the State’s longest operating advertising agency, are responsible for the branding and management of the multi-faceted program. Major highlights include a strong focus on technology with Skype and live feed sessions with women leaders in India, China, Ecuador and Italy.
