Women Talk Construction Forum is now Breaking Barriers Forum
Michael Powell posted an article in Articles,Women Talk Construction Forum is undergoing a name change to Breaking Barriers Forum.
The forum is over a year old now and since its creation, many things have changed. We have grown as a company and now the forum has two parent websites (womentalkcaonstruction.com) & (womenconfidencebuilders.com)
Both of our parent websites contribute to the forum such as providing accessibility, giving the forum exposure, providing resources, etc. Initially, the forum was designed after the Women Talk Construction website as it was created first. The colors, styles, etc of Women Talk Construction were deliberately mimicked while designing the forum to provide a fluid, recognizable experience across both platforms. Since then, Women Confidence Builders has been created as a non-profit organization that, by design, was created with its own unique style and character. In order to make the most sense coming from either website, we decided to give the forum its own identity starting with renaming the forum to something that still represented our mission while separating itself from only the Women Talk Construction website alone.
Hence, we introduce ... the Breaking Barriers Forum!
Now that you have been introduced, we have provided a couple of different themes that you can choose from. Each theme's style takes its personality from our respective parent website (it's basically a cosmetic preference and does not affect any content that you are able to see).
Light Theme - Women Talk Construction
Dark Theme - Women Confidence Builders
You can change your theme preference at the bottom of any page within the forum. Simply click on the 'Theme' drop-down menu in the footer of the page to see your choices. See the image below

CERTIFICATION GUIDE "Why to get certified"
ChristiPowell posted a topic in Welcome!,Hey there!!!
Wondering "Why to get Certified" and "Where to find FREE resources to Build your business". This information could be the difference between you having little success and A LOT of success. These tools and free resources are not always easy to find! Let us know if you use them and if they helped you!! Shout out to us on SOCIAL MEDIA, please. Tag Angela and Christi and of Course, Women Talk Construction.
The link above is one of the largest companies in construction who require WBE/MBE participation. Every customer has their own unique need.
This link below is the office that will show you step by step how to get certified. It will take 1/10th of the time going through here if they're as good as other states. Let me know how they do for you in NC.
(there is an office in every area to assist and make your certification process very easily)
When it comes to federal government contracts, you may want to contact your APTAC…there are many workshops included on this website as well.
Also, this training is free this year for the first time. [https://ascent.sba.gov/ [ascent.sba.gov]? The women in our area who are successfully winning government bids have used this website to gain valuable insight into operating their businesses in government purchasing.
We are here to provide you with a starting point and to make connections for small businesses with resources and government officials who are qualified as well as make introductions to customers and connections, when they are working on projects in a particular area.
