ADL New York/New Jersey’s NextGen Community proudly hosted an Outreach Network Event entitled, “Empowered Women Change the World”. With over 60 guests in attendance, the event featured esteemed panelists Lauren Goldberg of Vereit Inc., NYPD Deputy Commissioner of Equity and Inclusion Dr. Tracie Keesee, Assemblywoman Nily Rozic, and Alexis Tryon of The Muse.  Our own Director of Community Engagement, Melanie Robbins, served as moderator. Each panelist offered a unique perspective on the challenges and opportunities of being a women in the workplace, and how collective society can work together to ensure equality for all. A special thank you to our host committee co-chairs, Hope Thomason and Dina Silberstein and our host committee members- Dara Handelman, Alana Kalin, Alyssa Sandman Malin, Sogol Somekh, and Stephanie Weiss for their continued support and dedication.
