Today, more businesses are started by individuals who identify as racial and ethnic minorities, women, veterans, LGBTQ+, and disabled entrepreneurs. These experienced visionaries face challenges getting their business in front of their targeted audience. In this workshop, we’ll discuss how to make your diverse-owned business stand out. Want to sell to large companies? We’ll break down the decades-old supplier diversity industry standards and give practical advice and modern solutions to develop relationships with buyers through the corporate procurement process. Feeling alone in your journey? We’ll share the spaces where you can build community with other diverse-owned businesses. Join us to learn more about tools, training programs and certifications that can help build your business.
