Andrea C. Silbert Rising Star Award

In 2000, CWE began awarding clients annually with the 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. 

Please congratulate this year's winners:
