‘Women Warriors in Business 2018’ program is May 17


JERSEY CITY – A program focused on “Women Warriors in Business” is scheduled for Thursday May 17 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the New Jersey City University School of Business Harborside II, 200 Hudson St., Jersey City.
The organizers say the goal is to facilitate a real dialogue about topics that are important to women entrepreneurs and leaders.
“The program will help women explore leadership challenges and opportunities, identify competitive advantages, help with personal and organizational branding, access lenders for financing, and utilize procurement certifications that are necessary when it comes to competing for public/private contracts.
“According to U.S. Census Bureau data, New Jersey based women-owned firms make up nearly 32 percent of all businesses, generating $49.5 billion in receipts. Nationally, a 2012 study from the National Women’s Business Council reported that over 9.8 million women have businesses that generated $1.4 trillion in receipts. Of that figure, approximately 383,000 veteran women-owned businesses – which are one of the fastest growing segments of the veteran population – generated $17.9 billion in receipts.”
Seats are limited, and the cost for attendees is $25. Tickets may be purchased here.
