MBDA Tacoma Business Center Earns Regional Recognition

The Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA) Tacoma Business Center recently earned regional recognition from the Northwest Mountain Minority Supplier Development Council (MSDC) for its continued excellence in advocating, including, promoting, and contracting with Minority Business Enterprises (MBEs). 

MBDA Tacoma Business Center Program Director Linda Lee Womack accepted Northwest Mountain MSDC's Special Recognition Award for her team’s collaboration on Amazon Business’ year-long Global eCommerce Platform pilot project for MBEs. This project also involved establishing a working partnership with MBDA’s office in Washington D.C. 

"Fifty-five MBEs have been selected to participate in Amazon Business’ pilot project, effectively introducing them to hundreds of government and public agencies across the country," said Womack, who also received a Phyllis Gutierrez Kenney Award nomination on behalf of the MBDA Tacoma Business Center from the Northwest Mountain MSDC. The Phyllis Gutierrez Kenney Award is presented to individuals employed by a Northwest Mountain MSDC government agency member who exemplify commitment and dedication to creating business opportunities and advancing minority business successes through the Northwest Mountain MSDC and the community.
