‘Women Who Rock’ named by Minority Business Enterprise Magazine


Women Who Rock June 25, 2019 - Minority Business Enterprise, a 35-year publication, has named ten women who have achieved continuous milestones in business while demonstrating strong community leadership.

This past June brought together over 4,000 woman businesses in Baltimore, Maryland to participate in the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC)’s, National Conference and Business Fair. 

In conjunction with WBENC, MBE Magazine hosted a celebration called “WBE’s Who Rock”.  The sixth year running, the WBE’s Who Rock awards celebrate women and minority business owners who have made an impact in their communities.  MBE Magazine has been in production for 35 years and it strives to “sing the praises of women business enterprises (WBE’s) that are doing more than striving for business success: ‘They  are reaching out and giving back to their communities in big ways,” says Barbara Oliver, Editor of MBE Magazine.

This year ten women were honored; and among  them was GLORIA BOHAN, founder, owner, CEO of OMEGA WORLD TRAVEL and The OMEGA FAMILY OF BRANDS*, including CRUISE.COM, OMEGA MEETINGS.

Gloria Bohan was nominated by her staff to win a 2019 WBE’s Who Rock for her engagement in the community over her 47 years in business! The nomination form asked about specific achievements within, and contributions to the community, involvement in various causes, and specific achievements and contributions within the business/ industry.  Gloria has been a pillar in the business community, she is frequently recognized for her work and community outreach. Her list of accolades is impressive – and includes, most recently, was named “Executive Leader of the Year” by the Northern Virginia Chamber of Commerce.  Furthermore, Gloria was honored at the prestigious American Society of Travel Advisor’s (ASTA)’s Lifetime Achievement Award, and has been inducted into the Business Travel News’ (BTN)’s Hall of Fame.

This year, Gloria was excited to have the opportunity to Co-Chair the WBENC’s National Conference and Business Fair and was thrilled to win the WBE’s Who Rock award.
