About the 25 Influential Black Women in Business Awards

Launched in March 1999, The Network Journal’s 25 Influential Black Women in Business Awards honors women whose professional achievements have significantly impacted an industry or profession, and who also have made an important contribution to her community. A “TNJ25” honoree typically is a business owner, or a partner, president, CEO, board chair, or other senior-management executive with significant decision-making authority in the corporate, nonprofit (including academia and medicine), or government sector.

“The women we honor in this 23rd year of the awards span a wide range of occupations, industries and expertise, and they share the same traits when it comes to their career and community service: passion, drive, focus and commitment. We salute them for achieving significant levels of success in their businesses and professional careers, and for their myriad contributions to their community,” states TNJ Publisher and Chief Executive, Aziz Gueye Adetimirin.”
