The Brava Awards program celebrates high-impact female business leaders in three categories: CEOs, Executive Directors of Nonprofits, and C-suite executives. Brava award winners combine their irrepressible entrepreneurial spirit with a passion for giving back to the community, and are exemplary leaders of both their companies and their communities. They encourage local philanthropy, mentor up-and-coming leaders and set their companies on the path to tremendous growth. Each year, an independent committee of local business leaders selects winners based on company growth, community impact and mentoring. SmartCEO shares their inspiring stories in SmartCEO magazine and celebrates their success at a high-energy awards gala.

The 2016 Brava Awards program will honor exemplary female leaders in the following markets: Long Island and New Jersey in June 2016; Baltimore, New York City, Philadelphia and Washington, DC, in July 2016; Charlotte in August 2016; and Boston in September 2016.
