The Dame of Influence Award

Our Dames of Influence show us that it’s possible to reach great heights without becoming a two-headed She-Beast!

The Dame of Influence Award recognizes women business owners for the superior accomplishment of defying statistics to reach the million dollar revenue mark – a milestone reached by only 2% of female-owned businesses.

These spectacular women are honored for their contribution and leadership in the business community, and they mentor our members in the effort of further demystifying the million dollar mark. After all: “You can be what you can’t see.”
