Presented by Austin LGBT Chamber of Commerce
Learn how to make your minority and LGBT Supplier Diversity certification work for you!
Description: Current pending legislation is looking at demanding that 15% of federal contracting go to small, disadvantaged businesses. Why is this relevant and what outcomes (good/bad) can you see coming out of this for your plans/business? Leverage all your certifications (including LGBTBE) and where they intersect for the trillion-dollar infrastructure bill. How do you tear down barriers and tap into corporate spend? American corporations and government organizations have made diversity and inclusion a top priority, and many are looking to work with certified women-owned, minority-owned and LGBT-owned businesses.
