    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 (womentalkconstruction.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 and recognizable experience across both platforms. Since then, Women Confidence Builders was launched 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 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

    Please Note: The option to change your theme is only available to members. Also, some mobile browsers may not allow this option (we do not have any control over this, sorry).

    • ABC of the Carolinas is celebrating 25 years with this year's convention entitled "Building Success Together since 1998." This two-day event will encompass speakers, panelists, group discussions and talks based on what we are all facing in the industry. From economic and political updates to hearing from sought-after authors and nationally renowned speakers, there is value for everyone. 

      You can expect to learn about upcoming regulations, policies, procedures, and the future economic landscape directly from dynamic speakers at ABC's National Office in Washington, DC. In addition, hear from a panel of industry experts explaining how to navigate the challenges of VUCA (volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity).  Walk away with valuable and meaningful information to initiate with your team from world renowned best-selling authors and sought-after speakers in Jon Gordon, who's written 28 books including "the Power of a Positive Team," and Karen Barefoot, best known as "The Lady of Firsts" from early days in the college basketball world where she was the first person in NCAA history, male or female, to record 2,000 points and 1,000 assists in a career and the only player in NCAA history to lead the nation for four years in assists. And finally, interact and engage with contractors, suppliers, and associates over golf, meals, breakout sessions, and other activities.

      This event allows you the opportunity to sit in a room with decision makers and influencers. So, join us for this great two-day convention where we can continue to build success together!

      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.


      https://www.messer.com/subcontractors/diverse-suppliers/ [messer.com]

      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.
