SC Johnson and Schwan’s Consumer Brands, both Network of Executive Women sponsors since 2009, have strengthened their commitment to the organization for the coming year. SC Johnson is now a title sponsor; Schwan’s Consumer Brands now holds platinum status.

"NEW provides the people of SC Johnson with leadership, learning and networking opportunities not available anywhere else,” said Darwin Lewis, senior vice president-global sales and chief customer officer. "We are proud to be associated with an organization that shares our mission of enabling women to reach their full potential.”

"NEW has provided me with the tools to grow both personally and professionally,” added Jodi Truckor, senior corporate account business manager - SC Johnson Kroger Team. "Leading the college outreach team has developed my leadership skills, while I formed deep friendships with other NEW members.”

NEW New England college outreach committee lead Sandy Pietraszek, consumer and trade solutions manager for SC Johnson, said her involvement with the organization drove her to improve her networking skills, take advantage of developmental workshops and kept her more closely connected to what others in the industry are doing to compete effectively. "But most importantly,” she said, "I am inspired by the strong, intelligent women of NEW.”

Leaders at Schwan’s Consumer Goods, whichstrives to foster an inclusive and supportive work environment where employees can reach their highest potential, look to NEW "to help fulfill our vision of attracting, developing and retaining women to enhance business performance,” according to co-Ambassadors Vicki Schwartz, vice president of customer supply services, and Diane Cooke, vice president of human resources.

"NEW ties in with the Schwan’s Women’s Network focus on three core foundational areas of education, networking and engagement,” Schwartz added. "Our experience as a gold sponsor for the last number of years has demonstrated NEW to be a strong source to leverage for these areas. We are very excited to enhance our sponsorship and involvement.”
