Considered one of the most prestigious recognition programs for outstanding women entrepreneurs, the Enterprising Women of the Year Award recognizes outstanding women business owners from North America and around the globe.

The event also includes the annual Hall of Fame Luncheon to recognize two outstanding women entrepreneurs who will be inducted into the Enterprising Women Hall of Fame.

A full schedule of workshops will be offered on April 3, including a track for international attendees.

The event also includes the annual meeting for the Enterprising Women Advisory Board, a 170+ member board of outstanding women entrepreneurs, leaders of the major non-profit organizations that support women’s entrepreneurship, and top corporate representatives. The event provides an outstanding opportunity to network with the prestigious members of the Enterprising Women Advisory Board and award honorees.
