CELEBRATING 17 YEARS PROMOTING, CONNECTING AND OPENING DOORS FOR WOMEN ENTREPRENEURS

On behalf of the New York Women’s Chamber of Commerce, we want to
extend a heart-felt thank you for supporting our 2018 New York Women
of Excellence Awards & 16th Anniversary Ceremony. This event would not
have been a success without your support! We are looking forward to
your continued support in 2019.

Each year, our New York Women of Excellence Breakfast recognizes and
honors the achievements of stellar Women-owned firms and partners who
have gone above and beyond the call of duty in creating successful
business relationships. The effects of these relationships are felt
state and city wide from the creation of contracting opportunities and
new jobs, to the delivery of those goods and services that are
strengthening our economy every day.

Thanks to your enthusiastic response we were able to raise needed
funds for our 2018 ContractHER Program, which focuses on increasing
the dollar amount and number of city, state and private contracts
awarded to women entrepreneurs who continue to receive less than 2% of
city, state and private contracting opportunities. As we continue to
build community awareness, we know that membership, partnerships and
collaboration with our sponsors are vital to the sustainability of the
growing number of Women’s Chamber programs that advance and
economically empower our women entrepreneurs.

We appreciate your commitment to the mission of the New York Women’s
Chamber of Commerce and are counting on your renewed support in 2019!
