What started out as the Women in Business conference in 2005, the Smart Women Breakfast addresses issues facing women in the workplace. This morning conference also recognizes the achievements of leading businesswomen, inspiring male advocates and effective women’s programs through the Smart Women Awards program.

The Smart Women Breakfast & Awards currently takes place in Cleveland.

Any individual employed by a for-profit or nonprofit organization with a physical presence within the region is eligible for an award.
