Three hundred and fifty businesswoman from the tri-state area will descend on New Jersey City University's School of Business this May to explore the topic of women in the workforce.
NJCU President Sue Henderson today announced the university will host "One World: Empowering Women fro the Global Conversation" May 17-19, with lead sponsor JPMorgan Chase & Co.
The event, which will be held at the university's waterfront School of Business, will focus on the theme of "Womenomics: Making the case for Women in the Workforce."
Participants will learn from business 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 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.
"The One World conference presents an opportunity for a timely discussion on global equality," Henderson said in a statement. "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."
Major highlights of the three-day program will include a strong focus on technology with Skype and live feed sessions with women leaders in India, China, Ecuador and Italy.
