There’s no denying that more and more women are leading, innovating and paving the way for other women and the next generation. These awards celebrate 7 years of connection, empowerment and giving back.

The ETTWomen Community has been encouraging and supporting women entrepreneurs to rise and live the life and build the business of their dreams and most importantly, step up and out for each other.

ETTWomen provides a much needed platform for authentic connection and personal and business development for women entrepreneurs.

These awards were created for business women to sit back and reflect on all of their achievements. The ETTWomen in Business Awards is an opportunity to celebrate the women whom have helped shape this wonderful organization.

If there’s a woman in business who inspires you, or you see the potential in yourself, we look forward to hearing about it.
