2nd Annual Business & Leadership Summit another Major Success

2nd Annual Business & Leadership Summit another Major Success

On Saturday, February 7th, The Garden State Woman Education Foundation held its 2nd Annual Business & Leadership Summit for New Jersey High School Girls. The evaluations don't lie, it was a huge success! We can't wait to do it again next year! Thank you to our sponsors KPMG and PNC, everyone from the Rutgers Business School, all our panel speakers, and of course our participants!

Over 100 young women registered from 35 high schools, plus some came with their counselors or parents. Their evaluations show that this was an invaluable experience and they learned a lot. For example, we asked, "What was the best part of the program for you?" Here are some of the responses:

  • "When all the women were telling stories about what they do. I was interested in all of them."
  • "The Future Women Leaders panel showing that if you want something you have to fight for it. They also taught us that risks are a big part of growing up."
  • "Meeting so many new people and expanding my knowledge on a topic I did not know about."
  • The Panel of Entrepreneurial Women and Future Women Leaders. I found what they said to be very important to me and my life."
  • "Learning I can make opportunities for myself and to push myself out of my comfort zone." 
  • "The Woman Leaders Panel. It was very inspirational to hear how women who started out as ordinary students with obstacles and challenges like me were able to overcome them and find their own path for success."
  • "Connecting and networking with other girls at the event during lunch and the ice breaker session."
  • "The enthusiasm and diversity of each of the speakers and that everyone had different formuals for success.

Donna Wilk Cardillo's keynote address and the fast-paced panels were organized to have women at various stages of their careers and educations share their experiences and guidance with the high school attendees. The panels included:

  • Three "C" level women leaders with KPMG, PNC Wealth Management and Mars International: Katie Dahler, Theresa deLeon and Isobel Wayrick.
  • Three women entrepreneurs experienced in starting and developing new ventures: Aiko Thurlow, Sarah Neill and Diana Bald.
  • Four young women, three currently seniors in college and one in grad school: Dana Drahos, Rohini Putcha, Natasha Pojedinec, and Cherae Boyce.

In the middle of the program there was a 40 minute break-out session in which teams of high school young women participated in a business quiz game led by students from the Rutgers Business School.

The program ended with a discussion of Rutgers as a possible university for attendees to consider, as well as a discussion of picking the right college for you in general.
