In three weeks, WBENC will kick-off our next big event series, WBENC 2021: Focus on the Future. In collaboration with Co-Chair Sponsors — Bristol Myers Squibb, ALOM, and M. Davis & Sons — we are bringing together experts from America’s Top Corporations for Women’s Business Enterprises and our WBE Stars to help women-owned businesses not only survive these challenging times, but also grow and thrive.

At WBENC, we always do our best to bring our network the most innovative and impactful ways to learn and connect, especially in these virtual times – and next month is no different! With a wide variety of industry-focused sessions, an intuitive virtual platform, experts from Top Corporations and WBE Stars, industry trends and solutions, and face-to-face interaction, there is truly something for everyone.

Still on the fence? Here are four reasons to join us for this exciting virtual event:

1. Make Connections

We know one of the most challenging aspects of the pandemic and social distancing in the business world is missing out on in-person networking events, meeting new people, and connecting with old friends and colleagues. At WBENC 2021 Focus on the Future, there are dedicated sessions centered around face-to-face interactions to share meaningful discussions and make connections with fellow attendees, including our Interactive Industry Think Tanks happening Tuesdays 2-3pm ET. Turn your camera on and make connections!

You will also have access to a virtual event platform where you can create an e-business card and connect and chat with fellow attendees.

2. Help Us Celebrate America’s Top Corporations for Women’s Business Enterprises and WBE Stars

Is there a better way of honoring some of the most impactful leaders in our WBENC network than coming together to hear from these experts and joining dynamic discussions with them to develop industry trends and solutions? We are bringing together changemakers and thought leaders from leading industries including Travel & Hospitality, Utilities, Healthcare, Technology, Financial Services, Retail and more to lead dynamic sessions.

Every Tuesday, beginning June 8, we will feature representatives from America’s Top Corporations for Women’s Business Enterprises along with our WBE Stars participating in panel discussions, lead engaging dialogues, and engage with attendees. Hear from corporate leaders, successful women entrepreneurs, buyers, procurement professionals, and more.

3. Gain Actionable Insights into Trending Topics Across Industries

We have gathered experts from across the country in various industries and disciplines to lead sessions laser-focused on providing actionable advice and takeaways to help your business and career.

There are countless opportunities to improve your knowledge and skillset on critical areas of business – all in one dynamic event series.

4. Make it Work with Your Busy Schedule

Made up of CEOs, founders, procurement and supplier diversity professionals, and other business leaders, the WBENC network is a busy group of people. We want to make sure you have the flexibility to make this event work with your schedule, not the other way around. That’s why we are offering all registered attendees access to session recordings for viewing on demand after session completion until July 14, 2021.
