On September 14, 2016, the GGBA launched its first in a series of Impact Builders. These educational and networking opportunities teach our businesses how to take advantage of their status as certified LGBTBEs, increase their business acumen, and get face to face with key supplier diversity professionals.
Focusing on how to create a positive and memorable impression on supplier diversity and how to prepare for coming changes in cyber security requirements, this workshop provided a ton of valuable information. For a summary of tips provided by supplier diversity professionals from AT&T and McKesson, read this post about how to be memorable — in a good way.
Our next Impact Builder, themed around subcontracting strategies and opportunities, will be held September 28, 2016, from noon to 4 pm at the Small Business Association at 455 Market Street, 6th floor. This event, sponsored by Southern California Edison, is a must-attend for LGBT businesses that want to get in the door and begin to leverage supplier diversity opportunities. Lunch will be served.
