3 Ways to Support Women-Owned Businesses
October was National Women’s Small Business month. As a certified women-owned small business, it was important for us to reflect on the inequities that still exist in business.
The pandemic has put a large strain on women-owned businesses and especially minority women-owned businesses.
Now more than ever, it is important for us to look at the companies, vendors, and people we work with to determine if there are ways we can support small women-owned and minority-owned businesses.
We have created three easy ways you can support small women-owned businesses.
- Look at the vendors you use most. Do you currently use any certified women-owned small businesses at your company? When choosing a new vendor, try not to immediately call the biggest name in the game. Look for small, local options first. More than likely, there is a small option that can provide you with the same pricing and much better customer service and attention due to their size.
- Search on WBENC’s website for women-owned businesses in your area or that fit your businesses’ needs. Check out their website wbenc.org.
- Spread the word. Even if you are not able to switch vendors at this time, you can share and like posts from women-owned small businesses to help them gain a social media presence.
