Presented in partnership with AT&T, our hybrid luncheon is an event where the most successful women business owners, entrepreneurs, executives, community leaders, athletes, philanthropists, and game-changers gather to celebrate their achievements. These powerful women are impacting and revolutionizing their communities, organizations, and causes nationally.

USBC values women who are influential among their peers, who are acclaimed by their industries, and who have made outstanding contributions to society regardless of age or occupation.
