ICABA World Network

The ICABA World Network, an online ecosystem for Black professionals and entrepreneurs, honored 20 women leaders at their 4th annual ICABA Salutes Women of Impact event. These women were honored for their distinguished careers and leadership. Some of the women honored include entrepreneurs and leaders in diverse industries such as healthcare, financial services, technology, academia, hospitality, as well as leading advocates for advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion.

“Each honoree is well-respected in their profession and demonstrates exemplary leadership,” said Jerome Hutchinson, Jr., Founder and Chief Servant Officer of ICABA. “They are role models for all and especially for other Black women. We are proud and humbled to recognize each one of them and to connect them to one another to collaborate and build community.”
