The Women’s Business Council – Southwest (WBCS) has been helping women-owned businesses grow since 1995.

Established in the heart of the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex, WBCS (formerly known as the North Texas Women’s Business Council) was formed by a handful of passionate women business owners and procurement professionals. Since the beginning, WBCS has been committed to facilitating and strengthening business opportunities between women-owned businesses, corporate America and the government.
