Join the Women’s Business Council – Southwest for Winning the Bid, an event created specifically for women business owners to meet and build relationships with corporate procurement and supplier diversity professionals. Attendees will sit with several corporate roundtable hosts as they discuss details about their bidding processes and upcoming opportunities for vendors. Before the roundtable discussions begin, network with fellow attendees over breakfast.

How It Works
There are roundtables of 8. One seat is for the corporate member host; the other seats are for WBEs interested in learning about that company’s procurement process. WBE seats are open on a first-come, first-served basis. Corporate members stay at their table. WBEs rotate and have the opportunity to visit a total of five tables.
