WOSB Outreach Event

Thursday, June 7th, 2012

T3W attended the WOSB Outreach Event in Balboa Park sponsored by the Women in Defense (WID) San Diego Chapter on June 6th.  Speakers included Rosa Rodarte of the US SBA and Trisha Ferrand of PTAC San Diego. T3W was particularly impressed by CAPT Allan M Strattman presentation on how NAVFAC is exceeding the fiscal goals set for contracting with WOSB.

Topics included: how minority owned businesses can partner with major corporations; how to use creative and out-of-the box thinking to boost business; why diversity matters in business and the community; and how to tap into potential opportunities with San Diego corporations.  The week was a smash hit with events hosted by SDG&E, Sony Electronics, Inc., Turner Construction, and the grand opening of the San Diego Minority Entrepreneur Supplier Development Center.
