EXIM MWOB | Export Readiness: Women in Manufacturing

When: Friday, March 31, 2023 - 2:00pm - 3:00pm
Where: Online - Pacific Time

As a manufacturer, are you reaching your full potential? Do you have the labor, equipment, and resources to take on new opportunities? Are you ready to expand your market?

Please join the Division of Minority and Women Owned Business at the Export-Import Bank of the United States (EXIM), for a conversation on Women in Manufacturing. Hear from the experts on the pro's and con's of exporting in the manufacturing sector.

Hear from our guest speaker, Kathie Leonard, President & CEO of Auburn Manufacturing. Learn how Kathie broke the "glass ceiling" as a Woman entrepreneur in the manufacturing industry.

EXIM has a dedicated group of specialists who work with minority, women, veteran and disable-owned businesses (MWOBs) to help them access EXIM financing. The MWOB group seeks to engage minority- and women-owned businesses that are interested in exporting their goods and services, educate them regarding the availability of EXIM financing, and increase the total amount of financing to support exports from these businesses.

Coming away from this meeting you’ll have a better understanding of how to start exporting whether it is right for your business, the advantages and disadvantages and the next steps to take to make it a reality.

Who can attend?

Anyone can attend. Our series of meetings are open to any businesses from pre-start up and start-up businesses or of minority status such as women-owned, veterans-owned, Asian-American, African-American, Hispanic, Native Americans, and other various backgrounds.
