Congratulations to the CWE Andrea C. Silbert Rising Star Award Winners & Nominees
In 2000, CWE began awarding clients annually with the CWE Rising Star Award. The award was named after one of our co-founders Andrea C. Silbert, when she left CWE for other endeavors.
The award is presented annually to a client from each of our 5 Women Business Centers who has been economically empowered from their relationship with CWE. Learn more about each of the Rising Star winners and nominees.
