2020 was a challenging year for businesses and organizations around the globe. We all needed to adapt, pivot and reimagine new possibilities to stay the course. I want to express my sincerest gratitude to our Corporate Member organizations for continuing and even increasing your commitment to supplier diversity and Canadian Women Business Enterprises (WBEs). Your dedication made a tangible impact on our community. Thank you!
2021 will be an important year and we are eager to partner with you in supporting the Canadian WBE Community. To increase your impact, a portion of your sponsorship will be used to compensate WBE speakers and WBE Award recipients.
I hope that you will continue your support in 2021 and beyond and I look forward to welcoming new organizations who understand the importance and the impact of engaging WBEs in their supply chain.
We look forward to partnering with you in 2021!
Silvia Pencak, President, WBE Canada
