Small and Diverse Business Forum
June 6 | 11:30 am - 2:00 pmFree
Minority businesses are an engine for our economy, both nationally and within local communities. According to Pennsylvania’s 2018 Disparity Study, which includes analyses of the diverse businesses in prime contracts and subcontracts in the state, there is an increase in total spend with diverse businesses. But, despite the progress that minorities and women have made with regard to business ownership, the report points out that stubborn barriers remain in starting and expanding businesses. AmeriHealth Caritas, a national leader in Medicaid managed care, is sponsoring a forum to look at the challenges facing small and diverse businesses with an emphasis on addressing barriers to accessing capital.
