Women’s Small Business Transportation Summit

March 12 @ 7:00 am - 1:30 pm PDT

The US Department of Transportation’s Office of Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization (OSDBU) would like to invite you to participate in the 4th ANNUAL WOMEN’S SMALL BUSINESS TRANSPORTATION SUMMIT.

In observance of Women’s History Month, we invite you to join a virtual Woman-Owned Small Business and Matchmaking event on Tuesday, March 12, 2024, from 10:00 AM until 3:30 PM.

The purpose of this virtual event is to celebrate women entrepreneurs and provide an opportunity for them to learn about technical assistance resources, capacity building, access to capital, and upcoming DOT initiatives, including Bipartisan Infrastructure Law (BIL) opportunities. Attendees will learn more about how to contract with the Department of Transportation and how we plan to increase WOSB utilization. We are expecting over 300 small businesses, prime contractors, and transportation stakeholders in attendance.

The first half of the day will include three panel sessions and the second half event will be dedicated to one-on-one business matchmaking via our Connections MarketPlace (CMP).
