NOTED JOURNALIST TO SPEAK AT NCJW’S LUNCH AND LEARN STUDY GROUP

TEANECK – National Council of Jewish Women Bergen County Section is delighted to welcome Joann S. Lublin, Management News Editor for The Wall Street Journal, as the speaker at their Annual Lunch and Learn Study Group on Tuesday, March 6 at Temple Emeth, 1666 Windsor Road, Teaneck at 12:00 noon.

Ms. Lublin will speak about her fascinating book, “Earning it: Hard-Won Lessons from Trailblazing Women at the Top of the Business World.” It describes leadership lessons from 52 high-level female corporate executives, based on the career challenges they conquered. Nearly two-thirds of the women interviewed are experienced public company CEOs. The Financial Times describes the book as “… stories of senior women in the corporate world [who] show that career obstacles, bad bosses, maternal guilt and sexual harassment can be overcome.”

As Management News Editor for The Wall Street Journal since 2002, Ms. Lublin works with reporters in the U.S. and abroad to conceptualize and organize coverage of management and workplace issues. She covers issues such as corporate governance, executive compensation, recruiting and succession and writes stories on these topics, mainly for the Journal’s front page and Business & Finance section. She long served as contributing editor of the Journal’s annual special section on executive pay and still helps coordinate coverage of its yearly CEO pay survey. She previously oversaw the weekly Career Journal pages and was responsible for career coverage.

“As a women’s organization, we always show great interest in women who have ‘shattered the glass ceiling,’” noted Jane Abraham, Co-President of NCJW Bergen County Section. “We very much look forward to hearing stories of women like Ms. Lublin who have navigated the corporate ‘battlefields’, and to learning their leadership lessons and experiences.”

The Lunch and Learn will include a buffet lunch catered by Foster Village Deli. The cost for the lunch and program is $18 and the registration deadline is February 27. To register and for more information, please visit www.ncjwbcs.org or call 201-385-4847.

National Council of Jewish Women Bergen County Section provides educational and stimulating programs and speakers throughout the year, including six general meetings and a myriad of study groups, book groups and trips.
