The 2021 Enterprising Women of the Year Awards Celebration & Conference will gatherer some of the world’s most dynamic top women entrepreneurs and leaders to share their knowledge, learn trending business concepts, and provide financially rewarding networking opportunities. Attendees will walk away with new strategic partnerships and clients that can help them grow their business.

2020 marked the 20th anniversary of Enterprising Women Magazine! With new elements and event design concepts in place, our 2021 event will provide award alumni and Enterprising Women Advisory Board members with a great reason to attend. The conference recognizes that our Class of 2021 award winners, as well as alumni award winners, have truly reached a level of success in their businesses that few achieve.

Winning the Enterprising Women of the Year Award is a once-in-a-lifetime recognition that honorees will not want to miss. Every honoree will be on center stage at the Gala Awards Dinner to receive her award and have the spotlight shining on her to recognize her outstanding achievements!

This conference also serves as the annual Advisory Board meeting for the outstanding women who are ambassadors for Enterprising Women and help support and sustain the important mission of EW. It offers an opportunity to network with other members of the Advisory Board, meet the Class of 2021 Honorees, and share their expertise in a warm, inviting setting. And because our conference was virtual in 2020, we are extending a special invitation to our Class of 2020 honorees to join us in Florida and walk across the stage to receive their award in person and enjoy their time in the spotlight--celebrating with family and friends.

Women entrepreneurs and business leaders from the Enterprising Women magazine readership are also invited to participate at this conference. It offers unbelievable access to some of the world’s most accomplished women entrepreneurs, many of whom are leading workshops throughout the conference.
