The New York Women’s Chamber of Commerce held its end of the year M/WBE holiday networking celebration on Wednesday, December 1, 2019 at Club 101, 101 Park Ave, from 5:30 to 8:30pm. 


The event featured a guest speaker, Valerie White, the Executive Vice President of the Division of Minority & Women’s Business Development at Empire State Development. White spoke on the ways in which the female minority entrepreneur space is rapidly growing and changing, as well as the increasing amount of funding that is available for MWBE’s (Minority and/or Women Owned Business Enterprise). 

A wide range of companies attended the event from city and state agencies, to prime and subcontractors, to minority and women business enterprises. Attendees had the chance to network with companies such as Turner, Skanska, Cushman & Wakefield, SCA (School Construction Authority) and McKissack & McKissack, just to name a few.  

The main purpose of the event was to expose individuals (members and non-members) to new connections within the business world.
