Womxn leaders and entrepreneurs are consistently demonstrating that they are overcoming challenges in business, and moving local and international companies forward at an astonishing rate. They are an unstoppable group that needs to be recognized, included, celebrated, and elevated.
CGLCC and Accenture are hosting a panel conversation with womxn entrepreneurs and business leaders to discuss the corporate procurement process and the business advantage of engaging with womxn entrepreneurs. The panel will examine the unique experiences, challenges and opportunities womxn entrepreneurs face in growing their companies, and they’ll highlight how diversification within the supply chain is better for business.
