Empowering Women in the Vending Industry

Wednesday, May 8 • 2:15pm – 2:45pm

Being a diversified vending service operator, specifically a woman-owned business, affords you the opportunity to gain new accounts, and have access to educational and grant opportunities. Learn what it means to be certified, why companies in government organizations have supplier diversity requirements, and how to obtain accounts because of this. Hear real accounts of successfully crafting an individual story to indicate relevance and get organic social media attention, which ultimately leads to more accounts.

  • Define what it is to be a diversified business owner (focused on woman-owned), how this may benefit you, and where you can find certification information.
  • Understand the importance of leveraging your diversified status in the marketplace.
  • Understand the benefits of creating your own story and how that leads to locations that meet your objectives.
