NEW YORKNov. 15, 2023 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — Women We Admire is pleased to announce The Top Women Leaders of New Jersey for 2023. New Jersey has experienced a notable evolution in terms of women’s leadership, reflecting a broader societal shift towards inclusivity and equal representation. These women-led businesses have not only broken gender barriers but have also promoted the further advancement of gender equality in traditionally male-dominated industries. A majority of our accomplished woman leaders highlighted this year for New Jersey have assumed pivotal roles demonstrating their dedication to humanitarian efforts, HR, education, non-profit organizations especially in the areas of DEI, and economic empowerment of minorities.

This year’s honorees include Michele Tuck-Ponder, former mayor of Princeton Township and current Executive Director of Destination Imagination. Awardee Dr. Roslina Racioppi, President and CEO of WOMEN Unlimited, explored women’s mentoring practices in her dissertation, “Women’s Mentoring Wisdom” focusing on mid-career levels. Additionally, Amanda DeMartino successfully leads the athletic department at the College of New Jersey, one of the most successful NCAA Division III programs in the nation.
