GFOA of NJ Day at the Races


2nd Annual Women At Work Conference a Huge Success


On Thursday, June 14th, approximately 60 professionals had the privilege of networking and earning continuing education credits while attending the GFOA of NJ’s 2nd Annual Women at Work Conference in the Ampitheatre of The Heldrich. 

The speakers ranged from professor to counsel to chief financial officer to personnel director to licensed clinical social workers.  They discussed the history of American women at work and how women have advocated for their interests, crossed boundaries and pushed for greater equality.  Some explained the practical tools they rely on in order to facilitate their roles as leaders and manage conflict resolution.  Recognition of communication differences between genders were examined and strategies were offered for adapting to the workplace while creating balance. 

Attendees remarked:

The camaraderie among the audience and open dialogue that the speakers initiated were invigorating and my favorite.

I am leaving with a sense that I could conquer the world!

"I truly enjoyed this conference and will be sure to be return next year and bring along a number of my colleagues."

The GFOA of NJ Conference Committee thanks everyone for making the event a huge success and are looking forward to seeing you at next year’s Women at Work Conference.
