Event Recap

This past April 4, the NYSBDC at York College collaborated with a Queen’s coalition of organizations to hold a workshop for Jamaica-based MWBEs and entrepreneurs. Over 140 people attended. The forum was divided into two panels and moderated by Dr. Stacie NC Grant. Panelist tackled questions of M/WBE participation in government contracts while handling the issues of what M/WBE means, how it helps businesses overall and especially when it comes to government contracts. The forum included opportunities to network with panelists and businesses. Attendees were given an intake form so they could connect with the NYSBDC at York College for resources and follow up concerns.
