EAST BRUNSWICK, NJ ─ The East Brunswick Regional Chamber of Commerce (EBRCC) is pleased to host “Resilient Leadership,” a professional development seminar with networking featuring community leader and presenter Tracy Fink. Tracy (as she prefers to be called), is the Director of the Executive Women's Forum (EWF) at CohnReznick LLP, and is a frequent speaker on leadership, resiliency, emotional intelligence, and mindfulness. The event will take place in the East Brunswick Public Library on Thursday, March 22nd, at 5:30pm.
Organized by chamber member co-chairs Amy Zimmerman Levine and Amy Denholtz Lewandowski and sponsored by Ibby’s Mediterranean Fresh of the Mid-State Mall on Route 18, Resilient Leadership is for anyone who is looking to explore personal and professional growth, understand the importance of emotional intelligence, and explore mindfulness as a tool for leadership development and well-being.
With March recognizing women’s achievements through history, Tracy was a natural choice for the chamber’s first leadership-focused event. Under her stewardship, the EWF was established as a gender-based business development initiative to emphasize connection, communication, and open-heartedness among executives. As its director, she knows the importance of developing leaders.
Tracy is keenly aware of how people can feel stuck at work. In order to become “unstuck” herself and to help others, she has been practicing and teaching mindfulness in the workplace and in her community. In addition to an MBA from Northeastern University and BA in Psychology from Boston University, Tracy is pursuing Mindfulness Teacher Certification through Search Inside Yourself, the global mindfulness-based, emotional intelligence program engineered at Google.
Recently, Tracy was name to NJBIZ’s 2018 list of the Best 50 Women in Business. This recognition is bestowed on distinguished women for their professional success, community involvement, and advocacy for women, with the winners selected by an independent panel of judges.
According to co-chair Amy Zimmerman Levine, a sales and marketing professional and 20-year resident of East Brunswick, “Tracy is an outstanding and highly regarded community leader - in the business world and in East Brunswick. Her knowledge and passion about mindfulness and professional leadership exemplify the wealth of talent within the East Brunswick region. We are thrilled to have her as the chamber’s first speaker on leadership and resiliency.”
“Leadership is a vital tool and is essential to achieving success. Tracy is a dynamic leader and an ideal speaker, especially given that it’s Women’s History Month. We aspired to host an event lead by a strong woman in our community where everyone would leave feeling inspired, motivated, and uplifted,” stated co-chair Amy Denholtz Lewandowski, owner of Jazzercise East Brunswick. “It’s important for women to be well-represented around the decision-making table and have opportunities to lead and succeed, but this event is for anyone.”
The EBRCC is honored to have Tracy headlining its monthly keynote event. Resilient Leadership is a trifecta of professional and personal development, community support through networking, and delicious local food.
Resilient Leadership will be held in Meeting Room 3 of the East Brunswick Public Library, 2 Jean Walling Civic Center, East Brunswick, New Jersey 08816 from 5:30pm to 7:30pm on Thursday, March 22nd. Complimentary specialty food will be provided by Ibby’s Mediterranean Fresh. Please email Amy Levine, at firstname.lastname@example.org, for additional information.
