Shining the Spotlight on Our Class of 2019

It’s an honor to present our Class of 2019—Enterprising Women of the Year Award Winners and Champions! Our commemorative awards issue of the magazine each year introduces our readers to an amazing group of women entrepreneurs who are leading fast growth businesses, providing leadership in their communities, and mentoring and giving back to the next generation of women leaders.

Mentoring is at the core of our values at Enterprising Women and each year we select a group of high school young women to attend our annual awards conference to receive leadership training and one-on-one mentoring from our award winners and members of the Enterprising Women Advisory Board. We met a remarkable group of young women at our conference in March and we are so proud of this important program hosted by the Enterprising Women Foundation.

This summer we are immersed in plans for our 2020 Enterprising Women of the Year Awards Celebration & Conference, which also happens to mark the 20th anniversary of Enterprising Women magazine. We are inviting top award winners from previous years to join us and every reader has an invitation to be a part of this very special conference. Watch for announcements on exciting keynote speakers and special programming that will make this our best awards conference yet! Enjoy this issue!

Enjoy this issue!
