Each year, fourteen exemplary women business leaders step into the spotlight to receive the nation’s premier award for excellence among women’s business enterprises (WBEs) bestowed by the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council.
WBE Stars are selected by the WBENC 14 Regional Partner Organizations (RPOs) that administer the WBENC world-class certification of WBEs in each of their territories.

The women’s strategic vision, business acumen and sheer talent combine to meet their corporate clients’ complex needs and propel our economy forward. These businesswomen inspire their employees, peers and clients with their tireless dedication to excellence in every facet of their lives.
