GLASSBORO – Four African-American women leaders gathered at Rowan University to take part in a uplifting symposium Saturday (Nov. 2) that celebrated women of color.
The Share The Tea: A Leadership Symposium for Women of Color took place at Rowan University’s Welcome Center.
The program featured Brenda Baldwin White, senior judicial education attorney at the Federal Judicial Center in Washington, D.C.; Rochelle Hendricks, director of community engagement and policy at Rowan; Kelley Johnson Reid, director of global regulatory leader at Janssen Research and Development; and Rhonda Jordan, senior vice president/chief human resources, at Virtua.
“Over 40 women of color convened on Rowan’s campus to hear from four dynamic panelists,” Monika Williams Shealey, Rowan’s first senior vice president of Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion, told Front Runner New Jersey. “The event offered an opportunity for sharing networking.”
The event was sponsored by the South Jersey Chapter of Jack and Jill and Rowan University Division of Diversity, Equity and Inclusion.
