On Friday, March 20, 2020, The Network Journal, New York’s leading Black professional and small-business magazine, will once again present its annual Influential Black Women in Business Awards at the New York Marriott Marquis. TNJ’s 25 Influential Black Women in Business Awards is one of New York City’s most prestigious events. For the 21st consecutive year, this luncheon event has been recognizing the most successful Black women.

This year’s 25 deserving women were chosen from hundreds of nominations from the ranks of professionals and entrepreneurs. They will be honored in an exciting program. This is an occasion to celebrate women who are going the distance. As always, there will be plenty of humor, anecdotes and the opportunity to renew acquaintances and network. It is an afternoon you won’t soon forget! Plan to be our guest now!
