Introducing the 2023 Empowering Women honorees

NJBIZ is proud to announce the recipients of the inaugural Empowering Women recognition program. 

More than 50 companies and organizations are being recognized for their tangible and innovative efforts to advance women in the workplace and community. 

“It is time to honor those organizations that invest in, elevate and support women leaders,” Suzanne Fischer-Huettner, publisher and managing director, said when the program was unveiled earlier this year. “Women leaders can only succeed with the support of the organizations they work for and with.” 

To be eligible, companies must have 50% or more than 100 staff working in New Jersey. The honorees also were chosen based on their commitment to some or all of the following: 

  • Have a track record of recruiting, hiring and promoting women. 
  • Offer a mentoring program for women. 
  • Work toward systemic change in society to combat inequality. 
  • Place women on the board or in the C-suite. 
  • Contribute to advancing the cause of women through outside philanthropic or community endeavors. 
  • Support programs that assist marginalized women. 
  • Provide scholarship assistance to women. 


All the organizations will be honored Aug. 1 at a celebration at The DoubleTree by Hilton in Somerset as well as in a future edition of NJBIZ. Tickets to the gala are now available on the event page. To learn more about this event and/or becoming a sponsor, please reach out to AnnMarie Karczmit at [email protected].
