We continued the celebration of our 100th anniversary and honored National Women’s History Month, as our AADC community gathered for a full program of powerful and inspiring presenters at our Women Moving Forward conference hosted in person at the Hilton East Brunswick Hotel & Executive Meeting Center on March 18, 2023. Special thanks to conference benefactor the Blanche & Irving Laurie Foundation, Inc. and Laura Zagoren Baron ’70.

On behalf of the entire AADC 100th Anniversary Women’s Conference Planning Committee, Chair Amanda Hugelmeyer ’04 welcomed nearly 250 alumnae, friends, community partners, the Rutgers community and the public. We proudly featured keynote Valerie Jarrett , the dynamic and influential Chief Executive Officer of the Obama Foundation. Thank you to Rutgers University President Jonathan Holloway, who attended together with his wife Aisling Colón, for sharing remarks at the conference. We also thank all of the presenters and panelists, who shared their time and talents and inspired us!
