WEConnect Europe

WEConnect-International-Official-Logo-with-TaglineWEConnect Europe is a non-profit organisation that is opening doors to new supply chains. Led by corporate members, it certifies firms that are at least 51% owned, managed and controlled by women and connects them with the growing global demand from corporations and the public sector for diverse and innovative suppliers. The organisation partners with corporations, associations, governments, women entrepreneurs and their supporters, and is affiliated with a global certification network for women-owned enterprises.

WEConnect Europe also facilitates the building of strong networks for women by connecting them both with procurement officers of top corporations and with other certified firms in order to enhance bidding capacity, and creates the opportunity of business to business contracting.

WEConnect Europe is the leading global supplier diversity initiative spearheading the connection of women-owned business and multinational corporations. It is Europe’s leading advocate of women-owned businesses as suppliers to global and national corporations and government bodies.

Our mission is to ensure that:
  • majority-women-owned businesses (51%+) are given fair and equal access to corporate and public sector procurement opportunities locally, nationally and internationally
  • corporate Europe and government agencies throughout Europe, understand and are able to benefit from the diversity, innovation and brand value-add that women-owned businesses bring

Our work is about access to contracts; it is not about preferential treatment.

We work with:
  • multinationals and government departments who recognise the benefits of widening access to their supply chains.
  • women-owned businesses who want to connect with corporates and demonstrate to them just how good they are.
A diverse supplier base is no longer an option – it is a business imperative.
WEConnect is here to create that opportunity.
