WBENC launched WeTHRIVE in the summer of 2020. The goal was to support WBEs through the uncertainty and unprecedented economic challenges as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic. The feedback from the first 2 cohorts and nearly 400+ WBEs who have participated has been so overwhelmingly positive. Accordingly, we are excited to host WeTHRIVE Summer 2021 July 27 through September 23, 2021.
All participants are part of one of three course tracks (Survive, Grow, or Thrive) based on a personal and business assessment completed during the application process. Consequently, the program offers virtual live learning sessions across five disciplines, including Leadership & Communications, Financial Management, Business Strategy, Operations & Human Resources, and Marketing & Sales, as well as interactive and engaging peer groups discussions.
