In recognition of Georgian Court’s commitment to recruiting, hiring, and promoting women, the university has been named a 2023 Empowering Women Honoree by NJBIZ. With 100% female deans, 67% female faculty members, and over 50% female administrators on its President Leadership Council*, Georgian Court University (GCU) is a leader amongst state and national universities in its efforts to provide opportunities at all levels of higher education for women.
NJBIZ announced the recipients of the inaugural Empowering Women recognition program on Wednesday, June 21st. Georgian Court and more than 50 other NJ-affiliated companies and organizations are being recognized for their tangible and innovative efforts to advance women in the workplace and community.
