For minority and women supplier diversity business entrepreneurs


Did you notice anything different when you picked up the magazine today? Perhaps, a new cover design caught your eye. So, now that you've seen this special cover, what do you think?  

MBE is innovating but deeply rooted in a rich tradition of brand that brings the supplier diversity community to life. So, no, we are not changing our signature look. However, we are excited about this month's cover design because we wanted to reflect the bold and creative visions of the enterprising women that are covered inside this issue's pages. These women, along with the subjects of our profiles and others mentioned here, represent the next generation of supplier diversity. 

They are smart, bold, confident, and fearless. They have been possessed by a vision of their businesses and made moves to pursue it. These women do not take no for an answer-and they know how to leverage their certification and relationships to build alliances. 

This is our Women's Issue and we have it packed with a lot of progesterone. It's a woman's world, after all-and this becomes truer every day. Perhaps the most inspiring theme that emerges in story after story is one of collaboration and teamwork. Competition, while still a reality, has taken a back seat to an attitude that seeks to win contracts and tackle tasks in conjunction with their peers, and not against them. 

The theme of a common struggle and working to make the world more accessible for minorities and women, who will be pursuing their own dreams of business ownership in the future, is as consistent as collaboration. These women are cognizant of their own battles and work not only to make their own way in the world, but also to prepare that way for other entrepreneurs. 

From Donna Stevenson's successful software solution for MWBE contract and compliance management to the resounding successes of the 14 WBENC Stars, you'll find the stories of the remarkable industry leaders within these pages will inspire you, educate you and entertain you. So, enjoy the new look, read and share our stories. This is our tribute to the women of our world.

Cheers!
