About the 3rd Annual LBA Minority Women’s Business Conference (MWBC)
The MWBC, providing women in business the opportunity to connect with the top Women Executives from various utility and telecommunications companies – focuses on how women and minorities in business not only can meet the buyers but also successfully obtain a contract!
The Conference aims to provide a welcoming and supportive business environment for all minority groups, most particularly women. It will feature insightful discussions, panelists comprised of top women executives from major corporations and powerful presentations covering a broad range of topics, in addition to several networking opportunities throughout the day – all designed to empower you, the business entrepreneur!
The LBA Minority Women’s Business Conference was formed in 2010 to encourage women to engage in fields in which they have traditionally been underepresented – namely Energy and Technology. All are welcome. This is the time to engage in a full day of the exciting and dynamic world of women in business!
“This is an opportunity, in our community, to do business with each other—to encourage minority women to engage in fields in which they are currently underrepresented –and connect them with contracting opportunities.” – Ruben Guerra, LBA Chairman & CEO.

“The 2012 Latin Business Association Women’s Business Conference was even
better than the first year I attended. I am always impressed with the quality of the women attending the conference. The speakers are always outstanding and present valuable information needed to help improve your business. The variety of different businesses represented in the vendor section was exceptional and I enjoyed learning about their companies.
During the conference I met many people, gathered a lot of information and exchanged business cards that will go into my data base. The following week I received a phone call announcing me as the winner of a free membership with the National Latina Business Women’s Association – Los Angeles Chapter! I am looking forward to attending the Conference in 2013.” – Arlene T. Dyer, Founder & Executive Director- MYSELF, Inc.
