Program Overview

The Women's Business Enterprise Council (WBENC) understands and research shows that having a comprehensive business ecosystem is critical to the success of all women owned firms, but particularly for firms owned by women of color. 

That's why we are launching the WBENC Women of Color Outreach & Development Program in order to provide these firms with the tools and information they need to help them strengthen their business ecosystem. We will focus on the following components:

  • Access to capital
  • Access to business and personal development
  • Understanding the corporate supply chain
  • Access to social and business networks

Join us for the inaugural WoC session
