Hetherington Group Recognized by NJBiz as a Top Company for Women at Inaugural Empowering Women Awards

(Wanaque, New Jersey) August 2023 – Hetherington Group (Hg), a consulting, publishing, managed services and training firm that leads in due diligence, corporate intelligence, and cyber investigations by keeping pace with the latest security threats and assessments, is proud to announce that on August 1, 2023, Hg was recognized by leading New Jersey business journal, NJBiz, as among 50 organizations in the state that have implemented “tangible and innovative efforts to advance women in the workplace and community.” Hetherington Group was chosen from a competitive field that included many of the largest employers in the state for this inaugural Empowering Women honor. 

Honorees were selected by an independent panel of judges based upon a documented commitment to recruiting, hiring, mentoring and promoting women; advancing the cause of women in the workplace and community, including efforts to combat inequality; contributing to philanthropic efforts to assist marginalized women; and elevating educational opportunities for women.

At the NJBiz ceremony, Founder and CEO Cynthia Hetherington, who accepted the Empowering Women award on behalf of the company, said, “As a woman who had to break the glass ceiling to elevate in a technology-driven field, I have felt it is my duty to help other women advance in this ever-evolving, exciting and rewarding industry. 

“Hetherington Group holds inclusivity as a core value, and we have mentored and supported women at every career stage. We have also taken the proactive step of supporting women leaders by signing the PARITY pledge, which is a commitment to interview one woman or minority person for every senior management or C-suite position available. On behalf of my team, we appreciate being recognized for this inaugural honor alongside some of the most esteemed companies in New Jersey.”
