How to Get Contracts with PG&E & Other Large Corporations:  A panel discussion with NAWBO SFBA President and PG&E

Supplier diversity levels the playing field for businesses and certifying as a diverse supplier puts you in a position of opportunity to bid on contracts that you may not otherwise have access to. In this program, we will discuss how to do business with large corporations like PG&E as a diverse supplier, such as Small Businesses, Woman Owned, Veteran Owned, etc. and how you can best position yourself for success. Learn how to obtain contracts or business with corporations and large companies.

In 2020 more than 38.9% of all annual PG&E net procurement spend, equating to almost $3.94 billion, was with certified diverse-owned businesses, including women owned businesses.

Learn about:

  • Corporate supplier diversity programs
  • Supplier selection funnel process
  • Creating an effective capability and business profile
  • What to do and not do
  • Benefits of becoming a diverse supplier
  • Contract opportunities with major enterprises

Moderated by NAWBO-SFBA President Nooshin Behroyan, CEO of Paxon Energy & Infrastructure Services
