Astra Corporate Membership

Astra invites publicly traded corporations that embrace the importance of diversity in their supply chains to become Corporate Members.

Corporate Members receive significant benefits by having direct access to women-owned businesses and assistance with strategic sourcing for their supply chain needs. Members are invited to participate in supplier diversity programming designed to address the growing challenges of running these programs and proving the bottom line value to major stakeholders.

Corporate Membership helps to underwrite Astra programming to educate women-owned businesses and to build a network of connections that will be vital to business growth.

Invest in Astra with a $3,000 Corporate Membership. Complete the Corporate Membership Application to support Astra and the regional WBEs in Alaska, Northern California, Idaho, Montana, Oregon, and Washington.

Corporate Members report that they save millions of dollars in business costs and have built a loyal brand with women as consumers.
