“Our values in communications are aligned with preventative health. This program was comprehensive in terms of every aspect of business management. And, we can learn more about how to contribute to CVS Health as a supplier” Nhora Barrera Murphy, President and CEO of The Media Network.

As a supplier to CVS Health in “our own backyard,” Snead said that she shared the assignments in the program with her key staff. She saw this as an inspirational challenge in surfacing new ways to market their services and expand their networks. The exercise was so instructive that some of the responses will be included in Banneker’s upcoming strategic plan. “This was an opportunity to make our senior leaders better educated and to uplift our company as well ” Cheryl Snead, President & CEO of Banneker Industries.

Susan Rittscher, president and CEO of the Center for Women and Enterprise, a Regional Partner Organization of WBENC, added, “This program shows how WBEs can learn continuously and enhance their competitiveness.”

“I am impressed with the caliber of the program, as well as with each of the professors and the material they created for our use, and of my peers. Taken together, this mix created an incredible platform for all of us to stretch, learn, and grow.” Tracy Benson, Founder and CEO, On the Same Page, LLC.
