MBDA & NMSDC presents Enterprising Women of Color Initiative @ Online
Jun 3 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm
MBDA & NMSDC presents Enterprising Women of Color Initiative @ Online

Join the Minority Business Development Agency’s Enterprising Women of Color Initiative in partnership with the National Minority Supplier Diversity Council, as they present a 4-week virtual event series for women of color entrepreneurs looking to reevaluate their business strategies. During this virtual event series, they will also have resource providers on hand to share valuable information on navigating new opportunities to help you formulate your COMEBACK strategy.

We know this is a difficult time for everyone, especially business owners. Part of that difficulty is not being able to see past our circumstances, how to shift our focus, and move forward. MBDA has curated this series as a way to bring together a community of women entrepreneurs and resource providers to share ideas and new perspectives because we are all in this together. Our hope is that you will walk away with a refreshed plan of action and inspired to move forward in the wake of this monumental pivot.

2020 Leadership & Advocacy Awards Luncheon @ DoubleTree Suites by Hilton Hotel

Ladies and Gentlemen,

We are aware of the global, national, and local health risks posed by the recent outbreak of COVID-19 in Washington State. Our responsibility is, first and foremost, to support our Council Members, MBEs, and Community Partners. We have spent a significant amount of time thoughtfully assessing the current situation and have decided to postpone the 2020 Awards Luncheon currently scheduled for March 25th.
Living up to our Council purpose—helping our Members and MBEs grow, while not placing them at risk—necessitates we postpone the Awards Luncheon. The new date is October 1, 2020.
