NJPAC Women’s Association Spring Luncheon

#HipNJ spent a lovely afternoon at the NJPAC Women’s Association Annual Luncheon. An annual favorite, the event is a truly unique experience hosting over 500 prominent and high profile women business leaders and philanthropists from the NJ metro area onstage for lunch on-stage at Prudential Hall.

This year’s keynote address was given by Mikki Taylor, editor, speaker, author and proud “Brick City girl!” She shared messages of empowerment and strength from her new book, Editor in Chic: How to Style and Be Your Most Empowered Self with host Michelle Miller of CBS News.

Here are some of the day’s highlights. For more, visit #HipNJ on Instagram and view our story from the day:
