In celebration of Women’s History Month and in the spirit of women helping other women succeed, CWE is hosting a series of “HELP! Clinics” throughout the month of March. These workshops are tailored to address common problems WBEs face or points of confusion when navigating the supplier diversity world.

This webinar will be led by representatives from Harvard Law School’s Transactional Law Clinic. They will provide a brief overview of general contract law, expand on common words and points of confusion in contracts, and describe frequent issues encountered in contracting. From subcontracting, to client contracts and more, they will teach us the basics so we can be better prepared as our businesses grow and we get more contracts!
