December 04, 2022 3:22 AM | Carolyn Brewer

The 9th Annual Women in Entertainment Luncheon was recently held at Dignity Health Sports Park in the American Express Stadium Club in Carver City, CA. It was an empowering afternoon filled with plenty of networking, amazing shopping, live entertainment, delicious cuisine and more! Ms Debra L. Lee, Chairman & CEO Emeritus/BET Networks and Chair of The Leading Women Defined Foundation, received the "Inspiration Award."  

Among the list of honorees Ms Dion Peronneau received the NABFEME Profiles In Excellence Award ... an honor she was presented on August 25, 2001 but was unable to attend and receive. 21 years later, Dion was received her “Female Business Owner of the Year” Award at the WIE Luncheon presented by Congresswoman Maxine Waters.  It was an incredible honor for both the National Association of Black Female Executives in Music and Entertainment, Inc.
