Force for Change Awards

In 2020 LWE launched a new statewide initiative with NJBIZ as the media partner, designed to showcase women and men across all industries who are innovators and a true “Force for Change” in 25 categories. The Force For Change platform in 2023 will recognize these “stand out” business leaders who challenge the status quo have been instrumental in making New Jersey a model of innovation, leadership and financial viability for the nation. Their creativity, imagination and unique problem-solving approach positively impact their client’s needs and pave the path for future generations. We want to discover, connect and showcase communities, companies and individuals committed to a world with more freedom, consciousness and innovation. The awards are not a competition they are an acknowledgment of ideas, actions and initiatives led by thought leaders and people driven to make the world and our state a better place.


Top 25 Leading Women Awards

The best and the brightest women leaders have been recognized for a decade through the LWE platform. The New Jersey region is home to a fleet of talented female entrepreneurs and corporate leaders. An exceptionally qualified group of these women are recognized annually with the announcement of the Top 25 Leading Women Entrepreneurs, Intrapreneurs, Brand Builders and Socialpreneurs.

I just wanted to reach out to Thank you for all of your advice from the Money Power and Media event last May. I have been really proactive with all of your steps and I am starting to see a big difference. Getting involved with the LWE has really helped to get me out from behind the scenes, improve my self-confidence and get myself and company out in the media. I am now on the Board of Directors for the PWC NJ, was recently asked to be on my first panel (see below) and today Vericon was listed in the NJBIZ Top 250 Privately Held Companies in NJ. We are #142 !!! And of course the biggest accomplishment of the year, being a Top 150 2016 finalist for LWE. 2016 has been a huge year for me !
