Each year, WBENC honors 14 exemplary women business leaders with the nation’s premier award for excellence in business leadership—the WBE Star Award. These successful entrepreneurs, all WBENC-Certified Women’s Business Enterprises (WBEs), are leaders in their local business communities and respective fields, and an inspiration to women business owners across the country.
Each WBENC WBE Star has been selected by one of WBENC’s 14 Regional Partner Organizations (RPOs) and are recognized each year at the WBENC Summit & Salute.
