NJBIA Chief Member Strategy Officer Betty Boros was among 18 trailblazing New Jersey executives named to South Jersey Biz magazine’s 2024 Women to Watch list this week. 

The 2024 honorees were recognized for their “work to improve the industry landscape while bringing up those around them,” the magazine said. 

“Boros is an executive leader who supports strategic initiatives, provides high-level support
through project management, formulation of policies and plans, strategy development and more while leading the membership, events, programs and partnership teams” at NJBIA, the editors said. 

Prior to joining NJBIA in 2016, Boros served nearly 28 years with the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, working to improve the waters of the state, championing rule development, developing permits for dischargers, auditing environmental laboratories, and developing guidance for water and wastewater infrastructure management.  

Asked about companies’ ongoing Diversity, Equity and Inclusion (DEI) efforts for women, Boros told the magazine that work-life integration needs greater emphasis. 

“Balancing work and personal responsibilities throughout my career has been difficult, and frankly was the largest factor that affected my career path,” Boros told South Jersey Biz. “Much has changed in recent years, but efforts to promote work-life integration, such as flexible work arrangements, parental leave policies, and supportive workplace cultures that accommodate diverse life circumstances are essential to both bringing women to the C-suite and keeping them there.”
