Rochester, NY: Women in Government Contracting Workshop

Come learn how your business can get certified to meet the demand of women-owned businesses in the government marketplace.


Women-owned small businesses (WOSBs) are increasing in number, range, diversity and earning power. As women business owners expand their companies, they contribute to the growth of our national economy and defense.

In 2018, Women-owned Small Businesses (WOSBs) were awarded over $22 Billion in Federal Contracts - over half of that with DoD - NOT including subcontracts. But many agencies still have to meet their contracting goals.
