The promo products industry has a reputation for being an "Old Boy's Club". But thanks to Tier 1 WBE Canada suppliers, like Redwood Classics, the times are a-changin'. In the September 2021 edition of WBE Magazine, Kathy Cheng was asked to share her advice to women trying to navigate the promo products supply chain. Take a look! Thanks to WBE Canada for their continuous support and championing of women, including fellow Tier 1 suppliers featured in this piece: The Branding Company and Wonderkind.
"Every year, I find my voice being stronger and stronger through the development programs I have had access to through supplier diversity" - Kathy Cheng
