#CTW2013 Conference begins in less than 24 hours!  Preparing to welcome WBE's & Corporate Partners to 4th Annual Catch the Wave of Success.  Blueprint for WBE's - Be an Economic Force!!

Congratulations to WBE, Delhi Foods for their contract with Horseshoe Cincinnati!

Last spring Horseshoe Cincinnati leaders hosted numerous supplier-vendor outreach meetings to share the casino’s sourcing and procurement process.  With the support of several business and minority community stakeholders such as the CincinnatiUSA Chamber, South Central Ohio Minority Supplier Development Council (SCOMSDC), and the Ohio River Valley Women’s Business Council, more than 500 local business owners attended.  A key goal of the outreach was to also ensure meaningful supplier diversity.  As a result, 15 percent of the casino vendor contracts were awarded to Minority-, Woman-, Disabled- or Disadvantaged Business Enterprises.

And what about the black women whose names we might not recognize, but whose achievements were unmatchable in our nation's history -- like Madame C.J. Walker, who would earn the distinction of being the first female self-made millionaire in America.

And then there are the African-American women of our lifetime, who through persistence and passion and personal bravery broke down walls and leapt over obstacles in their efforts to makes ours a more representative democracy.

Women like Shirley Chisholm and Barbara Jordan, whose political journeys were doubly challenged by both racial and gender discrimination. Or writers like Toni Morrison, Alice Walker and Maya Angelou, whose powerful words about the black experience would become permanently etched in our national conscience, forever reminding us that we are a nation of one people. Or performing artists like Marian Anderson and Lena Horne, whose victories in the face of unjust segregation only intensified their impact on our culture.
