About Super Tuesday
The 28th Annual Super Tuesday Conference is an exciting and informative day of sessions, workshops, exhibits, activities and an awards luncheon. It’s held each year to highlight and recognize the accomplishments of women business owners and the full range of products and services they provide. The Conference attracts well-known and distinguished speakers, moderators, and panelists from all over the country. While the focus of the awards luncheon is on women, the Conference is designed by women business owners and professionals for women, men and students alike. Attendees come to the Conference from throughout the metro Atlanta region.
The Annual Super Tuesday Conference is a program designed to host business owners and professional women, men and students from throughout the metro Atlanta community. In 1984, under the leadership of Alice White Bussey, the Women In Business Committee of the Atlanta Business League created this forum to interact and raise awareness of African-American women business owners and professionals.
At that time the Women In Business Committee solicited the support of Mayor Shirley Franklin who was then the Chief Operating Officer for the City of Atlanta and former Fulton County
Commissioner Michael Lomax to support the idea of on-site certification for women business owners, thereby bringing new resources for corporations and public sectors of federal, state and local governments. Being a woman and understanding the plight of women across the board, Ms. Franklin was responsible for identifying a $5,000 grant to support the Women in Business Committee for a subsequent Super Tuesday program.
