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, one of WEConnect International's corporate members, 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. In the United Kingdom they are driving a new initiative in the supply chain and giving individuals the skills to compete in any economy.
To celebrate International Women’s Day, they would like to invite you and a colleague to their first conference of 2015 which will include a workshop on social media and a panel discussion session with new suppliers to Intel.
