D/FW MSDC helps form the Women’s Business Council
The D/FW MBDC would also have an enormous impact upon the creation of the North Texas Women’s Council (now known as Women’s Business Council – Southwest). Around 1998, the National Minority Supplier Development Council mandated minority councils could no longer certify women owned businesses. The Board of Directors and President of D/FW MBDC would be instrumental in funding the new women’s council. In 1994, D/FW MBDC registers the North Texas Women’s Business Council (now the Women’s Business Council Southwest), with the State of Texas and hires its first Executive Director.
