MENTORING LOCAL WOMEN-OWNED BUSINESSES
Date: August 1, 2019
Aristeo hosted a networking and mentoring event for local women-owned industrial businesses, as part of a new pilot program sponsored by Ford Motor Company and the Great Lakes Women’s Business Council (GLWBC), MentorWE. As mentors for this program, Aristeo Construction’s Michelle Aristeo Barton (President) and Anne Aristeo Martinelli (Chief Strategy Officer) presented on and facilitated a half-day event on the topic of strategic planning.
The MentorWE program helps women-owned businesses by matching them with peers within the same industry. They receive support, input and feedback from mentors, corporate participants and other leading experts in all areas of professional development catered to their needs.
Aristeo, a WBENC-certified business and corporate member of the GLWBC, was chosen to be a mentor for this program because of our strong support of the diverse business community and insight we can provide as the largest women-owned general contractor in the country.
“We are proud to be part of the MentorWE program and want to thank Ford and the GLWBC for inviting us to participate,” said Martinelli. “Aristeo has always supported diverse businesses and this program provides a great opportunity to help develop other women-owned businesses, increase their business acumen and support them as they grow.”
