Who Should Attend?

Are you a minority or a woman business owner? You can’t quite figure out how to get in the door? Maybe you are looking to diversify your business? At the City of Fort Worth, the size of your business does not always matter!

The Vendor Informational Forums target minority and women contractors. These forums will serve two purposes: 1) to ensure that firms are aware of opportunities to bid on City projects and 2) to identify gaps in experience, training, and capabilities that we can attempt to address early on.

The Office of Business Diversity is here to help diverse businesses gain access to the direct contracting and sub-contracting opportunities offered by city procurement in compliance with the City Council-approved Business Diversity Enterprise (BDE) Ordinance No. 20020-12-2011. Let’s talk!

Workshops are held Bi-Monthly

B.Y.O.L. — BRING YOUR OWN LUNCH! SPACE IS LIMITED.
