In House Technical Workshop:

Financial Success for Diverse Businesses in partnership with USC Marshall School of Business

This program is intended to increase business acumen and develop financial management skills of executives and senior managers of women-, minority- and service disabled veteran-owned businesses, who are challenged with day-to-day operations while trying to grow their companies.
This is a free series of educational seminars developed in conjunction with our supply management department and our current suppliers to meet the needs of current and future suppliers. We find that many suppliers are subject matter experts who would benefit from enhanced business knowledge and skills to enable them to more effectively compete and succeed. These seminars provide assistance in developing the basic knowledge for starting a company or growing a company to the next level.
