Experience the impact of partnering with a women-owned business

Working with a woman-owned business brings a multitude of benefits that go beyond just supporting gender equality. Woman-owned businesses tend to foster a highly collaborative and inclusive work culture, prioritizing teamwork, and communication. Partnering with a woman-owned business also offers various financial and social benefits such as providing tax incentives, opening new sources of revenue opportunities, diversifying your suppliers to provide multiple procurement channels for goods and services, promoting innovation and creativity, and exhibiting your company’s interest in working in diverse markets.

Words from our clients

“You can sum up Debbie, Connie and etc group with two words: The best. I have managed travel for over 27 years with Dow Chemical, PepsiCo, and Dean Foods. I have worked with some larger, as well as smaller travel companies in the past, but none could compare to the service and personal attention that etc group gives, not only to me, but our entire company. I have personally been involved with etc group for over 8 years and they have managed Dean Foods travel program for over 20 years now. I have compared etc group to other travel partners of my past and etc is simply above and beyond any of them. What you see is what you get. They are the most genuine and transparent travel company you will find.”

“I have had the great fortune to work with etc group in three different companies over the last 15 years. Every opportunity I have to introduce them to a new company, I take advantage of it and have never been disappointed. The etc group team brings an attitude of excellence that is difficult to match, whether it is in the service provided by the individual consultants or the one-on-one relationships they so actively foster. They have customer service down to an art!”
