NJ: Number of women nominated to N.J. state boards climbs as lawmakers vote to create first-of-its-kind database

NJ: Number of women nominated to N.J. state boards climbs as lawmakers vote to create first-of-its-kind database. “The number of women nominated to serve on state boards, commissions and authorities inched higher this year as Gov. Phil Murphy’s administration and lawmakers responded to criticism that New Jersey’s vast array of boards is too white and male…. The increases come as the state Legislature approved a bill last week that will require Rutgers University to create and maintain a first-of-its-kind database listing every person appointed to a state board, commission or authority and survey them to track their race and gender.”
