Opportunities for Women in Federal Contracting

ChallengeHER, an initiative from the U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA), Women Impacting Public Policy (WIPP), and American Express OPEN (OPEN), is designed to strengthen and promote the Women-Owned Small Business (WOSB) Federal Contract Program.

Before attending a ChallengeHER event, we strongly recommend you become familiar with the WOSB set aside program by watching the webinar below.
