Diversity, Equity and Inclusion for Small Business

DEI isn’t a corporate culture thing – it’s an everyone, everywhere thing!

Faculty, staff and students are invited to join us online Friday, January 20, 2023 from 12:00 – 1:00 p.m. to learn what you need to know about diversity, equity and inclusion for small businesses.

What does DEI really mean? What do you need to know as a business? What can you actually do within your business to properly represent equitable and inclusive practices within your business, with your customers and vendors – even when you don’t have an HR department and/or are working as a solopreneur?

This live webinar will be led by Ida Gibson, PhD, diversity and inclusion business partner at Meta and WBC Advisory Board Member.

RFP Contract Opportunity

The Women’s Business Center (WBC) is currently looking for a research and curriculum development consultant.

There are a lot of programs out there regarding financial literacy and getting loan-ready, yet we are hardly seeing the statistics change on the lack of access to capital for women business owners. The Covid pandemic has also shown us that the low-to-moderate income families have the most difficulty accessing the capital support offered in a timely manner.

The individual hired for this role will research what’s needed, what’s out there and what’s not, and then design a curriculum for the WBC to implement next fall.
