Success Stories

Wendy Fletcher-Hardee

Wendy Fletcher-Hardee 

President, Atlantic Coast Trucking, Inc.

"I had no idea that a four hour drive would be so life changing for myself and my business! Meeting with like minded women, who wanted nothing, but to come along beside me, to collaborate with me, to help me strive even higher, has been the most amazing experience! Countless hours given freely and joy experienced in seeing you succeed, how could you not want to be a part of GWBC?"

"EMI has seen many wins come from our GWBC engagements. First and foremost, are the relationships we’ve been able to make as we explore partnerships, and get to know colleagues with whom we can brainstorm and discuss challenges. Second, we’ve had doors opened for us as a result of being certified by such a credible organization."
