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:

Newark Educators on the Importance of Arts

Alison Scott-Williams, vice president of Arts Education at NJPAC, sat with Steve Adubato on “One-on-One” to discuss the importance of arts education for children in Newark.

“The arts are a way for one to express themselves and their thoughts,” Scott-Williams says. “We want to amplify students’ authentic voices.”

She goes on to state that students often do not have enough ways to express themselves. “We want every child to have the opportunity to be inspired,” she says.
