A Tribute to RBG: “The Genius of Women” with Bestselling Author Janice Kaplan

Tickets Here

Join us on-line as we celebrate the life and brilliance of the late Ruth Bader Ginsburg z”l with New York Times bestselling author, Janice Kaplan. Opening remarks by Lisa Harris Glass, Chief Operating Officer of Jewish Federation of Northern NJ.

Janice Kaplan, the New York Times bestselling author of The Gratitude Diaries, will talk about her exciting new book The Genius of Women: From Overlooked to Changing the World. In this powerful book, she explores why the extraordinary talents of so many women have been brushed aside, and she celebrates the women geniuses past and present who have triumphed anyway.

In her research, Ms. Kaplan interviewed neuroscientists, psychologists, and dozens of women geniuses at work in the world today—including Nobel Prize winner Frances Arnold and AI expert Fei-Fei Li. She discovered that genius isn’t just about talent. It’s about having that talent recognized, nurtured, and celebrated. She will explain how some women across the generations managed to ignore obstacles and break down seemingly unshakable barriers, and she will explain the traits that women geniuses have in common. In this inspiring discussion, you will learn what each of us can do to follow the path of women geniuses—and fulfill our own potential.
