Laura Blackmer discusses balance at the February 2017 Women for Women event.

North Jersey Event’s Women for Women networking event will be held from 6 to 9 p.m. Tuesday, October 24 at The Terrace at Biagio’s in Paramus.

The event will begin with a social and professional networking segment, where attendees can mingle, shop local vendors and learn about local businesses run by women. Following that will be a talk about genetics in breast cancer with Holy Name Medical Center Sponsor Speaker, Dr. Yadyra Rivera.

With a theme of “Back to Basics,” The Record and NorthJersey.com Sports Columnist Tara Sullivan will moderate a panel that includes Denise Albert, an award-winning journalist, television producer, co-founder of The MOMS and co-host of The MOMS podcast.

“This Women for Women event is a wonderful chance to meet with some impressive, inspiring entrepreneurial women in business and I am honored to serve as both moderator and participant in an important discussion about balance in our lives, ” says moderator Tara Sullivan. “Working women face unique challenges that can cover everything from expectations to obligations, whether to work or to family. We will be focusing on what we call the tool box we all own inside our own heads, and what tools we return to in order to get back to basics, to return to the roots that keep our lives in balance.”
