WEConnect International Day: Rise to the Challenge

Maximizing the power of STEM in global value chains

Bringing member buyers and suppliers together is what we do best. This year we focused on the importance of our STEM suppliers to all global value chains and issued eight individual sector awards and one overall winner. We also conducted our signature matchmaking activity leveraging a new technology platform to bring our certified and registered women-owned businesses together with the largest buyers in the world.

Thank you to all of our sponsors for making this event possible: ExxonMobil, Logitech, UPS, JP Morgan Chase, Johnson & Johnson, Cargill, Marriott, Unilever, Kellogg’s and IBM and to DiversityComm, Inc. for providing a complimentary subscription to Professional Woman’s Magazine.
