The BOSS Network celebrated its 10-year anniversary during a special evening at the Palmer House Hotel in Chicago. BOSS stands for Bringing Out Successful Sisters, and its celebration, The All Black Boss Awards, was an opportunity to acknowledge the organization’s longevity and host of influential Black businesswomen in the United States.

Tina Knowles-Lawson, Linda Johnson Rice of Ebony, and Syleena Johnson were a few of the guests who were honored during the celebration, which was held Friday, Oct. 11, 2019.

Rolling out spoke with BOSS Network founder Cameka Smith about what it means to have an event like this after being in existence for 10 years.

“I am so grateful. To have a business as a Black woman and be supported by Black people is amazing,” Smith said. “I want to encourage people to continue to support each other, especially in our community. We have amazing ideas, thriving businesses and we do work that’s impactful. Tonight my BOSSaversary, my 10-year anniversary, is all about Black women and business.”
