Business and community leaders will hear about trends and social-economic policies and learn more about cultural competency and ways to re-invest in communities where associates and consumers live.

“The SWLC is thrilled to continue its partnership with Meet AC and share the ongoing commitment of inclusion for everyone’s voice,” said Donna Albano, SWLC’s event coordinator and chair of the Hospitality, Tourism & Event Management program at Stockton. “It’s paramount to engage our community and continue to have events and discussions that focus on important issues and topics.”

“Our strategic partnership with Stockton University continues to evolve through highlighting the destination’s DEI (diversity, equity and inclusion) efforts by offering continuing and experiential education for groups meeting in Atlantic City,” said Howard Munves, Meet AC’s DC national sales manager. “Last year, we spotlighted a diverse group of women leaders in Atlantic City, and this year, we look forward to showcasing Latino leaders in Atlantic City. Without the support of the local community, this program would not be as successful as it has been.”

The SWLC is a program that provides mentoring opportunities for Stockton students and alumnae, personal and professional enrichment opportunities for women in the South Jersey region and creates a culture of philanthropy.
