-Center for Women’s Business Research

“As a volunteer, I have had the opportunity to witness the transformative nature of WEDC’s programs–from the newly-minted business owner who successfully puts together her first business plan to the experienced professional who increases her business’s revenues as a result of receiving the top-notch marketing guidance provided at one of WEDC’s many seminars.”
