Join in on an enriching opportunity for local entrepreneurs and diverse businesses to gain insights from the leading moguls of the haircare industry. Join the esteemed H-E-B Supplier Diversity Table Talks on Wednesday, March 20th, from 11:30 AM to 1:00 PM CST, for a transformative virtual session that empowers businesses with strategies for growth and success.

Formerly known as the Supplier Diversity Lunch and Learn, this complimentary event has been meticulously designed for current and aspiring entrepreneurs from the local, small, woman, LGBTQ, Disabled, and Veteran-owned business communities. With a theme centered on "The Moguls of Haircare - Community, Impact, and Business Expansion," attendees will discover actionable tactics for overcoming common challenges in onboarding, marketing, sales, securing funding, and overall business development.

Gracing the panel are influential founders Julissa Prado of Rizos Curls, Tessy Anifowoshe of NZURI, Renee Morris of Uncle Funky's Daughter, and Psyche Terry of Urban Hydration, who will share their expertise and pathways to success. These sessions, delivered quarterly and as business needs arise, are an embodiment of H-E-B's commitment to fostering a supportive environment for minority-owned businesses.

In addition to the Table Talks, H-E-B continues to champion local talent through the "Quest for Texas Best" initiative, a decade-long tradition celebrating Texan ingenuity. This open call invites local producers of food, beverages, and general merchandise to compete for a chance to feature their products on H-E-B shelves and win $25,000.
