Trade Talk is a quarterly industry-focused event, open to women-owned businesses and corporate sponsors. The corporate sponsors for this event are Fluor and PepsiCo. In a virtual setting, the sponsors share information on their supplier diversity initiatives as well as insights into their industry - what vendors and consumers can anticipate. Following that, we'll break into two rounds of 20 minute virtual small group discussions with the sponsors so every attendee has the opportunity to ask questions and network with each sponsor in a more intimate setting.

How Small Group Discussions Work

These are 20 minute, more in-depth discussions with the sponsors on their company's procurement practices. Attendees will be split into two smaller groups to facilitate networking and conversation with the public entities. If you speak with Fluor in the first round of discussions, you'll speak with PepsiCo in round two and vice versa.

If you’re looking to do business with Fluor or PepsiCo and/or learn about what's going on in the construction sector, this December event is for you!
