The highlight of our celebration is the presentation of the two annual awards:
The NAWBO-Charlotte Rising Star Award is presented to a member who has demonstrated entrepreneurial creativity and determination in successfully managing a business that is less than five years old.
The NAWBO-Charlotte Women Business Owner of the Year Award is given to a member who has demonstrated strong leadership skills in growing and managing a successful business that is more than five years old.
NAWBO Charlotte will also recognize three community leaders who have made significant contributions to the Charlotte region. Help us recognize their achievements at the Awards Gala and hear each of them share her leadership perspective.
The Business Leader Award is presented to an established member of the business community who has led a successful business; serves as a motivating force for both her business and for women in business, and supports economic development in the Charlotte community.
The Non-Profit Leader Award is a woman who has demonstrated a history of advancing the cause of her non-profit organization, while helping others, and setting an example for the importance of community and non-profit support initiatives by women business owners.
The Public Policy Award is given to a woman who has made a difference: in her community, in the state, and especially in the arena of setting and promoting policies which impact women business owners. She’s partnered with her community to advance the causes and success of the average citizen, as well as small business owners, to help ensure a more vibrant community.
