Join DBusiness magazine as we recognize the Powered by Women class of 2022.

About this event

DBusiness magazine’s event series featuring compelling business content across a wide range of industries and topics. Guests enjoy strolling breakfast, comments from the groups and individuals being featured, and an exceptional opportunity to network with metro Detroit’s top business leaders.

The number of women owning or managing businesses is on the rise now that the COVID-19 pandemic is waning. But operating a company today comes with a different set of challenges, including talent recruitment, supply chain shortages, rising inflation, and managing what is now a flexible workforce. Please join us in celebrating, and learning from, the 2022 class of Powered by Women as selected from reader nominations.
