On Monday night, NJBIZ honored New Jersey's most successful women in business with its Best 50 Women in Business awards event, held at The Palace at Somerset Park in Somerset. The Class of 2017 includes women from a variety of professions, including bankers, academics, executives and everyone in between.
What they all share, however, is that they are leaders in the business community, powerful in their organizations and industries, and building New Jersey’s economic future.
