Veteran PR pro Ludwin joins board of EWNJ

Connie Ludwin, senior vice president at Rosica Communications and veteran public relations specialist, has been selected to join the board of directors of Executive Women of New Jersey, the group announced.

Ludwin, a Madison resident, joined Rosica in May 2023 after a decade overseeing account operations and leading the social impact practice for a marketing communications consultancy. Prior to that, she served as CEO of Boys & Girls Clubs in New Jersey, where she forged partnerships between public and private entities and celebrities and developed and executed cause marketing, public relations, special events and other brand-building activities for the organization.

Her role on the board will include chairing the public relations committee and helping to increase awareness of EWNJ and the obstacles women in the workplace face in rising to a senior level within their organization or securing positions on corporate boards.

“We are so pleased to welcome Connie Ludwin to the EWNJ board,” President Courtney McCormick said. “Connie’s deep experience in nonprofit leadership with strong skills in public relations and strategic communications will be invaluable to EWNJ as we continue to pursue our mission to support and elevate women in leadership at all points in their careers.”

EWNJ is a community of senior executive women who share a common goal to advance gender diversity and inclusion in the workplace. The organization seeks to establish a pipeline for future women leaders to excel and flourish in corporate spaces through mentoring, advocacy and various networking events, including the Executive Dinner Series and the upcoming Salute to Policymakers on Oct. 22 at Legacy Castle in Pompton Plains. The gala recognizes 40 women leaders from diverse industries and raises funds for the Graduate Merit Awards Program, which has provided tuition assistance to nearly 350 women who were nontraditional graduate students at New Jersey colleges and universities.

“I’m excited join this impressive group of accomplished leaders in the fight for equal opportunity for women in both the for-profit and nonprofit sectors,” Ludwin said. “I have long admired the work of EWNJ and look forward to working with leadership in building on the great work and progress that has been made thus far.”
