Upon the invitation of the Consul General of the Republic of Poland in New York and the Polish National Foundation, Minister Anna Maria Anders took part in a Gala organized in the Polish consulate on the occasion of the centenary of Polish women's full electoral rights. During the Gala Rita Cosby, a special correspondent at CBS, was named "Polish - American Women of the Year 2018" for her professional achievements and commitment to building strong Polish-American relations. The Gala was also an excellent opportunity to remember such outstanding Polish women as Maria Skłodowska-Curie, Tamara Łempicka, Stephanie Kwalek and Helena Rubinstein.

During her stay in New York Minister Anders and the Consul General of the Republic of Poland, Maciej Gołubiewski, visited Jersey City where they laid a wreath at the Katyn Monument.

Minister Anders also met with representatives of the Main Board of the Polish Army Veterans Association in America and visited their beautiful museum.
