I run a women-owned business and would love to offer a workshop! How can we work together?
Sponsorship is not the only way to get involved. Would you like to run your own workshop at the conference? Do you have wisdom and expertise to share with other women-owned firms? Are you WEConnect International certified?
We have nine one-hour workshops we are offering on a complimentary basis to WBEs who want to share their knowledge and expertise with other women owned businesses. We will select the top 9 applications.
