NJ Conference for Women Announces Two Speakers

The Princeton Regional Chamber of Commerce’s Women in Business Alliance (WIBA) will present the sixth annual NJ Conference for Women with a speakers including artist Candy Chang and Lisa Tanzer, president of Life is Good. The event is October 26, at the Westin Princeton at Forrestal Village.

Chang is an artist, urban designer, and founder of the “Before I Die” project, which began when she stenciled the words “Before I die I want to _______” on a chalkboard wall on an abandoned house in New Orleans, after losing someone she loved. The project has turned into an international art movement.

Tanzer has over 25 years of consumer brand experience, serving as the company’s head of marketing as well as on the board of directors of the Life is Good Kids Foundation. Earlier in her career, she held marketing and strategy roles at Hasbro, Staples, The Gillette Company, and PricewaterhouseCoopers.

“The NJ Conference for Women is the state’s largest networking and educational event for women, designed to engage, enlighten, and empower attendees from across the state,” said Lorraine Holcombe, managing director and executive vice president of the NJ Conference for Women.

In addition to Chang and Tanzer, the event will feature Patrice Banks, founder of the Girls Auto Clinic, along with five interactive workshop sessions.

The conference will be held from 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. and tickets are $160. Tickets are now available at
