FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Global Services Donates $25,000 to Help Foster Growth for Women-Owned Businesses in Federal Contracting
Washington, D.C. (March 28, 2023) – Global Services, Inc. is a leading General Services Administration (GSA) Schedules and Federal proposals company celebrating its 25th year in business. To commemorate its 25th anniversary, Global Services is pleased to announce its donation to launch the Procurement Center of Excellence led by the organization Women Impacting Public Policy (WIPP).
This center will assist in scaling and navigating public and private opportunities. Through multiple executive education programs like Procurement Readiness and Capital Readiness that provide leadership skills, government contracting training, industry-focused development, and peer-to-peer forums, women-owned businesses will be poised for sustainable business success.
As a small business owner myself, I know the challenges women-owned businesses face in federal contracting. For 25 years, I’ve had the privilege of both witnessing and collaborating with many small businesses – many of whom just needed a little support to get to the next level of success. I believe that our donation to the WIPP Education Institute will help many Women-Owned Small Businesses (WOSBs) striving to make an impact in this industry.
