In a triumphant celebration of women entrepreneurship, the National Association of Women Business Owners—Los Angeles (NAWBO-LA) recently wrapped up its 6th Annual Procurement Event at the Port of Long Beach in November.
The event commenced with a compelling panel discussion featuring representatives from the Port of Long Beach, Southern California Edison and the Metropolitan Water District, shedding light on vast procurement opportunities for women-owned and diverse businesses. This insightful dialogue set the stage for a day brimming with invaluable insights and growth prospects.
Following the engaging panel, participants immersed themselves in interactive workshops, unraveling the secrets to effective matchmaking through practical examples. The event seamlessly transitioned into one-on-one matchmaking sessions, linking attendees with sponsors such as Edison, SoCalGas, MWD, Long Beach Transit, LADWP, Black & Veatch and others. These sessions offered a unique chance for participants to depart with tangible leads on securing government and corporate contracts.
As NAWBO-LA remains committed to empowering women entrepreneurs and fostering economic impact, the Procurement Event serves as a beacon of inspiration for the Los Angeles business community. Plans for next year’s event are already in motion, promising even more opportunities for growth, learning and connection. Visit nawbola.org for more information.
