Join us for our 2nd Annual Symposium on Barriers to Entry and Supplier Diversity in Government Markets

In conjunction with the release of our 2nd Annual Barriers to Entry and Supplier Diversity Study and Survey, we look forward to having you join us for an amazing event.  Last year, we had attendees from over 200 federal/state/local governments as well as small businesses, venture capital and more.

We will build on the momentum from last year to launch a regular quarterly and monthly series on Barriers and Supplier Diversity.

This year, our AGENDA includes:

  • Survey and Study Results – Barriers to Entry for Diverse/Emerging Suppliers Survey
  • Panel discussion on solutions to barriers and supplier diversity
  • 2 Case studies on federal, state/local initiatives
  • 2 Case studies by successful companies that have proactively addressed this issue
