WCOE enjoys a prestigious reputation on Capitol Hill and uses that clout to advocate for issues that are important to women who have entered the construction industry. Whether it is equal access to federal contracting opportunities, opposition to onerous federal regulatory challenges, support for expanding access to business financing, or participation in Congressional hearings, WCOE represents its members’ business interests.
The Department of Transportation Office of Business and Economic Opportunity has announced the representatives to the 2017 Caltrans Statewide Small Business Council.
