Resources to Combat COVID-19

Like you, our staff and board of directors are deeply concerned about the impact the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic will have on lives and livelihoods. We want to provide you, our women business enterprises (WBEs) and corporate members, information that can assist you and your businesses as we move through these critical times. We know that you are doing everything to keep your business up and running while creating a healthy environment during this unpredictable period.

This site has been set up to provide and connect you with the most accurate information about resources that can assist you with your business needs, such as financing from the Small Business Administration (SBA). We will also include links to the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the World Health Organization to keep you informed about the latest guidelines and recommendations about COVID-19.

We encourage you to share how you are managing your business under the WBE Forum section as we continue to monitor and provide the most recent and relevant health and business insights. It is important that you take mental breaks to clearly think about good solutions. You and your team are your business’s most valuable assets.

Remember we are a community of strong women businesses with corporate partners who understand the value that you bring every day. Stay tuned for updates on this page, check out our blog and download our live radio show on key business subjects at GWBC Radio.
