Women of Color Logo

The Women of Color initiative was started by WBCS in 2012 with the formation of the Women of Color Outreach Committee made up of both Women's Business Enterprise (WBE) and Corporate members. This initiative was established in response to the growing number of women-owned businesses being started by women of color. We host three business mixers throughout the year events geared toward women of color including happy hours, panel discussions, and business mixers. In 2020, we started a complimentary three month Certification Coaching Program which connects a prospective WBE with a current member who can help them through the certification process.

The coach and prospective member meet monthly at their discretion for three months. The next cohort takes place June through August of 2024.

Prospective Member Expectations
