A Dynamic Advisory Board Guides Our Mission

The Enterprising Women Advisory Board is comprised of a select group of women and men who show their support for the publication and give back to the women business owners’ community — helping provide leadership, motivation and inspiration to thousands of women entrepreneurs across the United States and Canada and across the globe. Board membership is reserved for top women business owners and corporate representatives, and it is considered a prestigious honor for a select group of accomplished women.

Members of the Enterprising Women Advisory Board are called upon to offer advice in their areas of expertise to the publication’s staff on how to best tailor the publication to meet the needs of entrepreneurial women. Many Board members author articles that are published in Enterprising Women, and all are consulted periodically throughout the year for input.

All Board members are invited to participate in the annual Advisory Board meeting, which is held the day of the Enterprising Women of the Year Awards Gala. This meeting provides the magazine’s editorial staff with valuable input. Our Board also gathers informally throughout the year at key conferences and events targeted to women entrepreneurs.

Enterprising Women Advisory Board members are asked to become the eyes and ears of the publication as they go about their work throughout the year. Board members often supply the editorial team with ideas about outstanding women entrepreneurs to be profiled in the publication, make the publication staff aware of important events or conferences where the magazine should have a presence, and generally promote the publication within their network of business associates and friends.

The Board has become a powerful networking tool for the women and men who participate. The leaders of the major non-profit organizations that support women’s business enterprises each have representation on the Advisory Board. Over 100 high-level women entrepreneurs are also on the Board, providing a diversity of ideas from a cross-section of businesses and industries.

Corporate support has also been important to the Advisory Board. Many of the leading corporations that support women entrepreneurs have representatives on our Board, including American Airlines, The Coca-Cola Company, IBM, OPEN from American Express, UPS, the Walt Disney Company, and others.

Board membership is available at two levels: a Platinum Level annual membership at $10,000, which includes three full-page, four-color ads that the member may choose to run in Enterprising Women or donate to a non-profit organization, and a Gold Level annual membership at $5,000, which includes three half-page, four-color ads that also may be run in the magazine or donated to a non-profit for use anytime in the coming year. Some members elect not to use the advertising included with their membership, but all benefit from the excellent PR that Board membership generates for their business.

Many Board members tell us that the alliance that exists between Board members is one of the most valuable benefits of Board membership. Each has made it clear that they are willing to give back to support the growth of the women business owners’ community and to mentor and provide leadership to other women. Board members become better acquainted with the businesses of other Board members, and they are often able to use these alliances to grow their own businesses.
