We recently opened nominations for the 2014 Enterprising Women of the Year Awards on our website at www.enterprisingwomen.com. Consider nominating yourself or a friend for this prestigious award that will bring worldwide recognition for you and your company.
We’ve set the date for the Enterprising Women of the Year Awards Celebration & Conference: March 2-4, 2014 at The Ritz-Carlton, Sarasota (Florida), a beautiful new location for this event.
Plans are already underway for an outstanding array of workshops, wine tasting featuring wines from women-owned wineries (check out our feature this issue on some of our favorite winemaking women on page 59), our annual Hall of Fame induction luncheon, gala awards dinner, the annual breakfast meeting for the Enterprising Women Advisory Board, matchmaking and learning labs with top corporate partners, and networking with the world’s top women entrepreneurs.
It is quite simply an event you don’t want to miss. So, mark your calendar today to join us in Florida! Registration opens December 1 on our website at www.enterprisingwomen. com.
We have also recently announced plans for a major initiative hosted by the Enterprising Women Foundation. Join us January 24 in Washington, DC for the Enterprising Women Foundation Mentorship Luncheon. The magazine is a proud partner in the Million Women Mentor project, and January is national mentorship month. The spotlight will be on STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) and entrepreneurship, and we are partnering with STEM Connector, the National Girls Collaborative Project (a coalition representing more than 7 million girls throughout the United States), as well as an impressive line-up of other partnering organizations from the women’s business community. Attendees at the luncheon will be encouraged to bring a young woman as a guest, plus the National Girls Collaborative Project will select 20 young women leaders who will be showcased at the luncheon.
This event will kick off a series of mentorship luncheons throughout the United States hosted by the Enterprising Women Foundation. We will be posting more information on our website and promoting it through our social media sites, and we are excited to share this news with the Enterprising Women community.
The highlight of the summer was our involvement again this year with the Institute for Economic Empowerment of Women (IEEW) Peace Through Business program. I had the honor of mentoring a young woman artist and business owner from Afghanistan, and we will be working together throughout the next year to help her grow her business.
We also presented the Enterprising Women of the Year Award to one Afghan and one Rwandan woman business owner in the Peace Through Business program. Look for a spotlight feature on our honorees in an upcoming issue.
The courage, intelligence and achievements of the students in the Peace Through Business program inspires us all. Congratulations to Dr. Terry Neese, president and founder of IEEW, for continuing to build on the success of this program and for making such a difference in the lives of these remarkable women entrepreneurs from Rwanda and Afghanistan.
