Intel Supply Connections - Promoting Women at the Heart of Economic Growth
It’s no secret that healthy competition leads to better products and services and a strengthened economy. Entrepreneurs have always been the catalysts for economic growth, and Intel has long been a champion of their efforts. To continue this tradition, Intel provides individuals with the technological skills, literacy, and resources they need to help their businesses succeed. Along with this they are dedicated to building an innovative and diverse supply chain reflecting the market and supporting the communities they work in. They believe that when an individual’s ideas are given the chance to flourish, the results are overwhelmingly positive for the entire community. Intel was created by entrepreneurs and supported by the people who believed in them. They are driving a new initiative in the supply chain and giving individuals the skills to compete in any economy. They are hosting a conference in collaboration with Kelly Services and WEConnect International dedicated to women owned business to promote women in our supply chain.
This event is aimed at majority owned women's businesses - those that are minimum 51% owned by one or more women - who provide products and services in the following sectors: marketing, HR, recruitment, catering, training, advertising, merchandise, events, corporate services, facilities management, legal and technology. If your business falls into another sector and you are interested in attending, please contact Maggie Berry at WEConnect International: email@example.com.
The theme of the conference is ‘How to do Business with a Multinational’ and the event will include inspirational keynote speakers:
Joan O’Shaughnessy, Vice Chairperson & Special Advisor to ARAMARK who will address the audience on her experience of working with Intel
Megan Stowe, Global Corp Strategic Procurement Environmental Social Governance Program Manager from Intel will give you some insights into how to do business with Intel
Linda Stuit, Vice President and Global Leader of the Hi-Tech Vertical from Kelly Services will discuss the workforce trends in the Hi-Tech industry
There will also be a masterclass workshop on “Scaling innovation in your business for competitive advantage” led by Angelique Mohring from GAINX as well as other workshops (detailed in the agenda below). Places are limited on the workshops so you will need to make your selection when you register for the event.
In addition, you will get to “meet the buyers” from Intel and Kelly Services along with Maggie Berry from WEConnect International.
