Expanding Supplier Opportunities for Minority-Owned Businesses
October 7, 2021 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
The National Minority Supplier Diversity Council reports that certified minority businesses generated $400 billion in economic output leading to 2.2 million jobs and $49 billion in annual revenue for local, state, and federal tax authorities. To encourage that growth, buyers must commit to diversifying their supplier’s pool.

- Minority businesses who and are looking to break into corporations to become preferred suppliers
