Each year, this honor is given to 14 women business owners from across the county.

"I am proud to receive this recognition from WBENC and look forward to serving as an advocate to other women in business," said Goldberg.

Almost 50 years later, it’s exciting to see how deeply committed corporations are to onboarding women business enterprises into the supply chain."
