RIVERDALE, NJ- On March 30, 207, Morristown resident Shacara N. Delgado was honored by the Girl Scouts of Northern New Jersey at its annual Women of Achievement event.
Delgado, Senior Vice President, Employment & Benefits Law for Realogy Holdings Corporation joins fellow honorees Maryanne Faschan, Managing Director at Deloitte Consulting, and the Women of Mountain Development Corp. including MDC Vice President Elizabeth Lieb, MDC Chief Financial Officer Irene Fitzgerald, and MDC Property Manager Denise Gonzalez.
Girl Scouts of Northern New Jersey’s Women of Achievement awards event honors individuals from local communities who have made outstanding contributions in their careers or personal lives, who serve as positive role models for young women, and who exemplify the values of Girl Scouting. This year’s program theme is Girls Building a Better World, and those being honored emulate the G.I.R.L.TM (Go-getter, Innovator, Risk-taker, and Leader) qualities the organization strives to nurture in every Girl Scout as they build a better world for all.
“These women are incredible role models for our girls and we cannot wait to honor them for contributions to their communities and their field of work,” said Betty A. Garger, president and CEO of Girl Scouts of Northern New Jersey. “We are honored to have such a prestigious slate of Women of Achievement.”
In addition to her legal work, Delgado is a Trustee for Tri-County Scholarship Fund, is a member of the Executive Leadership Council, and is a host parent for the Fresh Air Fund. She previously served on the Advisory Council for the National Association of Minority and Women Owned Law Firms, and recently served as Vice President of the Morristown Alumnae Chapter of Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Incorporated (a public service organization). She is a graduate of the Federal Bureau of Investigations Citizens Academy, and in 2016, was named among the list of 25 Influential Black Women in Business by The Network Journal magazine and one of the Top Influential Women in Corporate America by Savoy magazine.
Proceeds from Women of Achievement provide financial assistance to girls in need, who without help would not receive the benefits of Girl Scouting. Girl Scouts of Northern New Jersey serves girls ages 5-18 in 160 municipalities in Bergen, Morris, Passaic, Sussex, and northern Warren counties.
