Dear valued colleagues,
As you know from our previous outreach, our 2021 Share the GreenSM supplier diversity initiative is underway, with participant applications currently being accepted at sharethegreen.wm.com.
The national agencies and Chambers of Commerce are vital organizations needed to help make this year’s event a success and help reach our goal to increase diversity amongst corporate supply chains across the U.S.
All women-owned businesses who have products and services that could be used by major corporations are welcome to apply. We know your network of members includes the high-caliber women entrepreneurs we’re hoping to engage in this year’s event.
Help spread the word! Please send us your email list of female-member entrepreneurs so we can share this opportunity directly with them. Feel free to re-share the posts on the WM page as well: Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn. If you prefer to contact the women in your networks directly, please share the invitation to apply attached.
Following last year’s inaugural event in Houston, this year’s nationwide, virtual Share the GreenSM event (previously entitled Share the Mic & the Money Now), will allow more opportunities for more women across the country to participate. See what women from last year’s program have to say:
“The Share the Mic and the Money Now first inaugural event was a remarkable opportunity that provided a great ladder to elevate amazing Black entrepreneurs. With equality being one of our core values, we at Salesforce, believe that investing in our communities is integral to advancing racial equality. Last year we were honored to offer multiple benefits to participants, including mentorship and enablement. This year, with Share the GreenSM, we expect these positive benefits to grow!” – Monica Roberts, Salesforce
“Share the Mic and the Money was amazing for my tech business. It allowed me as a black led female business to get in front of multiple Fortune 500 companies and be able to pitch my services. I can honestly say I have gained so much knowledge, mentorship and connection from participating in this amazing pitch competition.” – Ariel Williams, Gravitt8 Development
