The Commonwealth Institute event to honor top women-led businesses

final_logo_smallThe Commonwealth Institute of South Florida (TCI) will honor Florida’s top 50 women-led businesses and top 10 women-led nonprofits at its 11th annual luncheon on Apr. 20 at Jungle Island.

The organization’s yearly event celebrates the achievements of women who hold leadership positions and focuses on how women are leading the charge in companies across the state.

To compile the ranked list, TCI sent a survey to over 4,000 women-led businesses, providing questions that revealed the companies’ successes and how they leverage their distinct attributes to advance professionally. Kaufman Rossin & Co. collected and analyzed the information, identifying the top 50 businesses and top 10 non-profits, which will be announced exclusively at the luncheon.

“For the past 10 years we have made it our objective to understand how so many smart, committed women run their companies, overcome challenges, and celebrate success, and then pass that inspiration onto every woman in the room,” said Laurie Kaye Davis, TCI’s executive director.

Prior to the unveiling of the list, the event will host a panel of four accomplished women who have blazed the trail in their respective industries. They will discuss their path to success, compare differences and similarities, as well as examine the business climate for women in executive positions. The panel includes:
Alicia Cervera Lamadrid, managing partner of Cervera Real Estate;
Ellen Latham, partner and founder of Orangetheory Fitness;
Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, president and CEO of Celebrity Cruises, and

Germaine Smith-Baugh, president and CEO of the Urban League of Broward County.

TCI’s 11th annual Awards Ceremony and Luncheon Honoring the Top Women-Led Businesses in Florida will take place at Jungle Island, 1111 Parrot Jungle Trail, on Apr. 20, from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Tickets are available at For more information please contact Alyssa Perez at (305) 447-8678.
