There is undoubtedly more work to be done to ensure that there is a place for everyone at the table.
We believe that where we spend our money matters, and that it’s important to support local small businesses and the people behind them. That’s why we’re introducing At The Table, an initiative to engage companies and nonprofit organizations in a commitment to support the local brick and mortar businesses that make our communities better.
At The Table – Women’s History Month
- Throughout Women’s History Month participating companies and organizations commit to purchasing a minimum of 50 percent of food, beverages, snacks, and catering for meetings and events from women-owned businesses.
- Individual members of the community are invited to participate by sharing why they support women-owned businesses via the At The Table webpage.
