Assemblywoman Caroline Casagrande (R-Monmouth) will launch a statewide tour in May and June to meet with top women leaders, such as Lieutenant Governor Kim Guadagno, to find solutions to obstacles that have held women back in the work place.

“New Jersey is a good place for women to work and we can make it the best by putting our heads together and coming up with creative solutions for women who want the opportunity to have a career and family,” Casagrande, R-Monmouth, said. “A truly equal workforce will benefit the bottom lines of families and the state economy by tapping into an under-utilized segment of the population. This is sound fiscal policy because when women work, New Jersey works.”

“Assemblywoman Casagrande is extremely talented and dedicated to this important issue,” said Assembly Republican Leader Jon Bramnick, (R-Union, Morris and Somerset). “She will work very hard with other women leaders to build a better work environment for New Jersey women.”

Casagrande has scheduled three panel discussions that will be held in May and June:

The panels will focus on issues facing women entrepreneurs and small business owners; ways businesses can keep women in the workforce after having children, such as flex hours and day care assistance; and why it’s important for companies to embrace women leaders.

“We want salary determined by ability and experience, not gender and parental characteristics” said Casagrande.
