At a “Meet the Buyer” event supported by ExxonMobil, we heard some positive feedback from women entrepreneurs who attended. The goal of the events was to bridge the gap between women entrepreneurs and the oil and gas industry and ultimately increase the number of WEConnect International certified women vendors registered with ExxonMobil.
