As of this evening, we are just nine weeks away from the YWCA Bergen County’s 40th Annual Tribute to Women in INdustry (TWIN), which will be taking place on Wednesday, October 22nd at the Venetian in Garfield, New Jersey. Over the past few months, YWCA Bergen County has put together a wonderful evening of women’s recognition, including an incredible keynote by Elisa Fernandez, Chief at the Fund for Gender Equality of UN Women, and 40 year TWIN retrospective.
TWIN recognizes business women who have made significant contributions to their companies and acknowledges the organizations that have supported their advancement. Since it was founded in 1974, TWIN has become the largest awards program of its kind in northern New Jersey, honoring women, companies and organizations in Bergen, Essex, Hudson, and Passaic Counties in NJ and Rockland County in NY.
Last month, Cytec proudly announced that we would be hosting the 40th Anniversary TWIN Awards. From the inception of TWIN in 1974 till 2014, we have been involved with the YWCA Bergen County and the Tribute to Women INdustry Awards. Over the past 40 years we have selected and honored over 40 women for their achievements both professionally and personally at this special event. Cytec has hosted this significant event in 1974 and 1994 (as parent company American Cyanamid), and 2007 and is truly honored once again to be host company as TWIN celebrates its 40th. Inspired by the YWCA’s commitment to empowerment, in 2004 the Cytec’s Women’s Network was established bringing together women to develop ideas for creating a better workplace.
We’re very excited to have Elisa Fernandez as this year’s keynote speaker. A leader in the field of women’s rights, Ms. Fernandez, will share her perspective and speak to the importance of promoting women’s leadership and decision-making in all spheres of society.
TWIN is a great opportunity to recognize the leadership and professional achievements of women in our community. As we honor another year of outstanding professional women, we also acknowledge the businesses and organizations that have supported their advancement.
Proceeds from the event will help fund YWCA Bergen County programs including child care, youth services, wellness initiatives as well as the YWCA Bergen County’s healingSPACE: A Sexual Violence Resource Center, Bergen County’s only provider of a 24/7 hotline for victims of sexual violence
