More than 200 NEW members learned how male executives view women’s leadership at NEW New York Metro's 10th anniversary fall learning event, Sept. 9, 2014 at Liberty House Restaurant in Jersey City, N.J.

Keynote speaker Jeffery Tobias Halter, president of YWomen, shared his insights on "Executive Success: What Men Aren't Telling Women” and offered advice on the leadership competencies women need to advance in the workplace.

"It is our responsibility to start the dialogue regarding diversity within our companies," Halter told NEW members.

Employee performance is important for advancing a career in front line and emerging leader roles, such as manager and director-level positions. "After that, performance is a given," Halter said. "Leadership, communication and political skills are the key factors that enable career advancement.

"When you find yourself in conversations with key leaders in your organization, be able to speak to how you are positively impacting the organization's revenue and profit."

NEW members and supporters networked and marked the milestone anniversary. "My regional director invited me to attend," said Janice Flaherty, license and permit coordinator, retail marketing division for Hess Corporation. "I [was] very impressed."

Jason Topolewski, national sales manager of food service for Food Specialties Trading LLC, has attended four NEW events. "Honestly, I enjoy getting to experience the female perspective and fresh point of view."

Organizations sending large delegations to the event included Acosta Sales & Marketing, Advantage Sales & Marketing, Coty Inc., Ferrero, Kimberly-Clark Corporation, Unilever and Wakefern Food Corporation.
