The Invest in America agenda is mobilizing historic public and private sector investments in infrastructure, clean tech, and the reshoring of advanced manufacturing and creating unprecedented contracting opportunities. Contracting with both the public and private sectors, presents a large opportunity for business owners, and promotes the growth and competitiveness of the U.S. economy.

“Women entrepreneurs are having a growing impact on our nation’s public policy, and forging business alliances across dynamic sectors of the economy. This survey shows the wide-ranging impact of the Investing in America laws’ commitment to ensuring women can expand and thrive in the economy. Our economy and our entire nation are made more prosperous through greater involvement of women entrepreneurs.” - Angela Di**le, President & CEO, Women Impacting Public Policy

We explored small and diverse businesses' contracting experiences and their readiness to compete by partnering on a new survey with

Public Private Strategies Institute, Initiative for a Competitive Inner City, National ACE, NAWBO National, National LGBT Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC), The National Center For American Indian Enterprise Development, National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDCHQ), National Urban League, United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (USHCC), NaVOBA, Women Impacting Public Policy (WIPP), Veteran Women SEC, US BLACK CHAMBER OF COMMERCE INC.

Learn more about how small and diverse businesses can compete for contracts and their experiences with procurement as a result of recent federal investments.

It’s year-end. Savvy business leaders are building their 2024 strategy, and everyone has an idea for the best way. Business books repackage the one-page strategic plan in different ways. This forms the ‘how’ you’ll operate in 2024.

However, let’s challenge ourselves together on the ‘what’ we will do before we get to the ‘how.’ Come prepared to think differently and creatively during this session with Sue Tellier to determine your ‘what’ for 2024. Required materials: an open mind, a willingness to think creatively, a blank sheet of paper, and a writing utensil.

It’s not easy to become less directive and more empowering. Here’s how to navigate the challenges.

A paradox of business is that while leaders often employ a hands-on, directive style to rise to the top, once they arrive, they’re supposed to empower and enable their teams. Suddenly, they’re expected to demonstrate “people skills.” And many find it challenging to adapt to that reality. To ...
