The Garden State Woman Education Foundation will host a Business and Leadership Academy in Florham Park from Aug. 11 through 15 to educate and inform high school girls about the importance of including business courses in their planning for college and a career.

Back in May, the Garden State Woman Education Foundation held its first annual conference at Rutgers University Business School in Newark.

Judy Chapman, co-founder of Garden State Woman Education Foundation and leader of the Academy also has invited college students studying business and/or economics from Harvard, the University of Pennsylvania, Tulane, Rutgers and more to assist in helping the high school students navigate college applications and choose courses.

“Rutgers was looking to attract more girls into their business program, and we were looking to inform and educate them to the fact that everything is business,” Chapman said.
