Upcoming Events

Join the Women & Pride Peer Groups + Community Building session August 12, 3:00-4:30pm ET. The session is designed to address the challenges faced by LGBTQ+ women business owners by sharing resources, strategizing to overcome problems, and forming new partnerships. This session is open to all women business owners who identify as LGBTQ+.

Why Participate?

Studies show that LGBTQ+ women are underrepresented at every stage of the management pipeline. For LGBTQ+ women, who are workplace minorities in both gender and sexual orientation, the feeling of isolation is common—and particularly challenging—in work environments.

The Women & Pride Peer Group was designed to build a community of LGBTQ+ women business owners to voice shared experiences, strategize with one another to overcome problems, and to strengthen the WBENC entrepreneurial ecosystem.

Who Should Participate

As an outreach and development program, Women & Pride is open to all women business owners who identify as LGBTQ+, including WBENC-Certified Women’s Business Enterprises and those not yet certified. 

If you are a female entrepreneur, but not yet certified by WBENC, attending a Women & Pride event is a great way to meet other female founders and see what the WBENC network has to offer. 

We also invite all allies of the LGBTQ+ community including WBEs, Corporate Members, and other partners.
