Women board leaders and executives, including NJBIA’s President & CEO Michele Siekerka, will share their insights on how to navigate a career path that leads to the corporate boardroom during an April 16 event presented by the New Jersey Chapter of the National Association of Corporate Directors. 

The event, “Women on Boards: Navigating Your Pathway to the Boardroom,” takes place from 8:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. on April 16 at the Canoe Brook Country Club in Short Hills.  

According to the latest report from The Conference Board and ESGAUGE, the share of female directors in the S&P 500 was only 32% in 2023. 

“We need more women on boards,” Siekerka said. “The opportunities are plentiful, but it doesn’t just happen. It takes work, networks, and a commitment to wanting to bring your skills and expertise to the table.” 

Siekerka, who serves on public company and nonprofit boards, including the NACD NJ, will moderate a panel discussion in which women speakers will share career path insights and answer audience questions. Speakers include:  

  • Karen Kessler, Founding President & CEO, Kessler PR Group;  
  • Cheryl Norton, Executive Vice President & Chief Operating Officer, American Water 
  • Brenda Ross-Dulan, Founder and Managing Principal, The Ross-Dulan Group and a NACD NJ Director; 
  • Kelly Watson, Vice President & Managing Partner, IBM Consulting
