FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
May 12, 2016
The National Association of Women in Real Estate Businesses (NAWRB) is proud to present the NAWRB Women’s Global Resource Center. The NAWRB Women’s Global Resource Center provides a women’s depository for vendors and clients to grow their diverse spend and increase women’s employment at all levels.
NAWRB’s goal is to have 250,000 women registered by 2018.
How do entities find women in the housing continuum and associated women-owned businesses? What is the best outlet to locate a women-owned business? There isn’t a clear answer.
NAWRB Founder and CEO Desiree Patno states, “There are opportunities for women and women-owned businesses that aren’t being utilized to their full potential. Set-asides are therefore limited and not being fulfilled, as entities cannot always find women-owned businesses to award contracts for their diverse spend. In addition, there are too few C-suite women in our industry seated at the table and available for mentorship.
The mission of the NAWRB Women’s Global Resource Center is connecting women of all levels and women-owned businesses within the housing continuum to pivotal business opportunities. Ownership or women-owned business certification, while a requirement for government contracts, isn’t mandatory for opportunities in the private sector or to enroll in our resource center. By creating a depository of women business professionals and women-owned businesses, NAWRB is bringing more women business avenues to the forefront.”
The National Association of Women in Real Estate Businesses (NAWRB) provides women the tools and opportunities for economic expansion and growth, while advocating and promoting women-owned businesses specializing in the housing economy. NAWRB is a leading voice connecting women in housing.
