The Empire State Development’s Division of Minority and Women’s Business Development, are inviting area businesses to attend the Central NY Region Minority and Women-Owned Business Enterprise (MWBE) Town Hall Meeting. The event will be held on May 14, 2019, 2:00 p.m. – 3:30 p.m.at the Southside Innovation Center, 2610 S. Salina Street, Syracuse, NY 13205.
Governor Cuomo has made it a priority of his administration to promote equality of opportunity for minority and women-owned business enterprises (MWBEs) and to eliminate barriers that have impaired access by MWBEs to state contracting opportunities.
This meeting will provide an opportunity to have an open discussion about New York State’s MWBE program. Provide your feedback on how the NYS MWBE program has worked in your community and your experience as a NYS certified MWBE in order to learn how the State can better support our efforts to increase MWBE participation in NYS contracting.
Consider attending this exciting regional community discussion and sharing this information with your friends, colleagues, and networks.
