Supporting Sherman Women and Minority-Owned Businesses

Sherman WOMO is working to create an environment of education and support to increase the number and size of Sherman minority-owned and women-owned businesses by:

  • Organizing a committee of local business leaders, primarily minority- and women-owned business owners.
  • Working with the committee to establish a program that will educate and provide support to new and existing minority- and women-owned business owners.
  • Developing online master classes featuring local, successful, minority- and women-owned business leaders presenting topics relevant to finance, organization, and marketing.
  • Marketing the master classes on various advertising platforms.
  • Educating minority- and women-owned business owners on resources available to grow and expand their operations.
  • Encouraging participation of minority- and women-owned business owners in events and other networking opportunities within the City of Sherman to market their businesses.
