Submit a nomination for the 2020 Enterprising Women of the Year Award!

As you submit your nomination for our annual awards program, we wanted to answer some of the most-asked questions about this prestigious awards program and the annual conference hosted by Enterprising Women each spring to celebrate our award winners.


What does it mean to win the Enterprising Women of the Year Award?

The Enterprising Women of the Year Award is widely recognized as the most prestigious global award recognition for accomplished women entrepreneurs. Winning the award signifies that you stand out from your peers for building a financially solid and growing business, you are a leader in your community, and you mentor and give back to support and inspire the next generation of women entrepreneurs. The Class of 2020 Enterprising Women of the Year Winners will be recognized at the 2020 Enterprising Women of the Year Awards Celebration & Conference, March 29-31, 2020 at the Wyndham Grand in Clearwater Beach, Florida. The Wyndham Grand is a beautiful beachfront resort with premiere conference facilities just 30 minutes from Tampa International Airport. Winners are encouraged to invite spouses, family, and key members of their teams to help them celebrate their success at this very special conference. The spotlight will be shining on you because you have worked hard to earn this recognition!
What makes the Enterprising Women Conference unique? 

The Enterprising Women Conference is limited to 300 attendees, including award winners and their guests, members of the Enterprising Women Advisory Board, previous award recipients, and other VIPs and thought leaders from the women’s business community.

Attendees are BIG THINKERS who are driving change. We come together to show our gratitude for the success of the world’s top women business leaders. Participating in this conference will help catapult your success to the next level.

The conference will open on Sunday, March 29 with a pre-conference afternoon focusing on Personal Health and Wellness. Come as you are in comfortable clothing and get to know other participants in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere.

We will kick off Sunday evening with a reception celebrating our Honorees, followed by Dine Around Dinners at area restaurants where you can get to know other leaders in a small group setting.

Monday, March 30, continues with a dynamic day of general sessions and workshops that focus on interactive sessions where you can share your story and develop deeper relationships with your peers. 

A delegation of outstanding high school girls who are recipients of scholarships in our Young Enterprising Women Mentoring Forum program provided by the Enterprising Women Foundation will join us at the Monday Mentorship Luncheon hosted by our nonprofit Foundation.

We will gather and continue the celebration at a relaxed cocktail hour and dinner on Monday evening.

Tuesday, March 31 is our awards recognition day! We will host our annual Advisory Board and Honoree Breakfast and shine a spotlight on previous inductees into the Enterprising Women Hall of Fame.
