FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Washington, D.C. – (July 17, 2020) – The National Women’s Business Council (NWBC), a non-partisan, federal advisory committee, is partnering with UPS for an in-depth conversation between Council Member Pamela Prince-Eason, President and CEO, Women’s Business Enterprise National Council; Maria Luisa Boyce, Vice President of UPS Global Public Affairs; and Loretta Greene, Associate Administrator, Office of International Trade (OIT), The U.S. Small Business Administration. They will discuss emerging opportunities for women business owners and entrepreneurs in international trade.
The webinar will take place on Wednesday, July 22, 2020, from 1:00– 2:00 PM EDT.
The pandemic has fundamentally changed the economic landscape in which small businesses operate. Now more than ever, women business owners and entrepreneurs are looking for innovative ways to pivot and grow their enterprises,” said Nina Roque, Executive Director, NWBC. “For that reason, we are so proud to be partnering with SBA and UPS to deliver a message of hope during this unprecedented time. Together, we want to encourage women business owners to seek opportunities in digital commerce and exporting.”
NWBC’s #WebinarWednesday is a monthly, multi-series webinar that serves as a platform for women entrepreneurs and business owners to connect them to key advocates, experts, and useful resources that can help bolster their knowledge and skills and elevate their entrepreneurial potential. At NWBC, we will continue to prioritize this challenge and strive to make inroads for women-owned businesses in starting and growing their business. The Council regularly convenes women business owners and entrepreneurs from across the country to connect their voices to policymakers in Washington, D.C.
“The U.S. Small Business Administration is tasked with helping small businesses grow their revenue and sales, which impacts the U.S. GDP. We are very much looking forward to taking advantage of trade opportunities for women in business with NWBC,” said Loretta Greene, Associate Administrator, Office of International Trade (OIT), The U.S. Small Business Administration. “For example, the U.S.-Mexico-Canada Agreement (USMCA) is a ground-breaking achievement for U.S. small businesses, and women-owned businesses can benefit from these new commitments and grow their companies through trade with our neighbors.”
“The coronavirus pandemic has brought about significant challenges for small businesses, but exporting and diversified supply chains can help companies come through this crisis and be better prepared to mitigate future disruptions,” said Maria Luisa Boyce, Vice President of UPS Global Public Affairs. “UPS is proud to work with organizations like the National Women’s Business Council (NWBC) and government agencies such as the Small Business Administration (SBA) to equip entrepreneurs with the tools they need to grow their businesses.”
