Despite Tough Economy, Women Business Enterprises Continue To Reinvent

"Women's business enterprises continue to reinvent themselves and weather economic storms," says Sonya Dukes, SVP and director of corporate supplier diversity at Wells Fargo who will offer specific tips for success at the Women's Business Enterprise National Council's Women in Business 2009: The Bridge to Quality Conference and Business Fair, in San Francisco, June 9-11.

Wells Fargo's commitment to creating sustainability and development in diverse businesses includes providing capacity building and entrepreneurial training for Women and Minority Business Enterprises. The program provides key resources, tools and techniques to develop operational excellence and stage suppliers for growth.

"We saw a lot of potential suppliers – successful companies – were struggling to adjust to our culture. We started this mentoring program to support them through the on-boarding process of understanding how we do business," Dukes says.
