Dear Sponsor/Partner,

Silvia PencakI want to thank our 2022 Sponsors and Partners for your support during the pandemic. Your commitment to supplier diversity and Canadian women-owned businesses made a tangible impact on many businesses, families and communities.

WBE Canada today is at a very different place than pre-pandemic. Our WBE database now hosts over 470 Certified WBEs and 68 Corporate Members. The generous support from our WBE, Corporate and Partner communities has helped us build new programs and resources for our community helping women-owned businesses grow and succeed and supply chains benefit from greater inclusivity, driving positive economic impact in communities.

The New Year brings new opportunities to improve our existing programming and continue enabling strategic networking in a meaningful way. We are currently developing our very own WBE Mentorship Program, seeking strategic partners committed to supporting WBE development. We are introducing a brand new networking opportunity - WBE Meet & Pitch - designed to connect WBEs with category buyers. We will continue supporting our community through virtual and in-person events and we are planning to increase the capacity of our National Conference to 450 attendees in 2023.

Your support can make a meaningful difference for women-owned businesses and supplier diversity in Canada. Please let us know how we can work together in the upcoming year.

We look forward to partnering with you in 2023!

Silvia Pencak, President & CEO, WBE Canada
