Who Should Attend:

Are you a minority 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 City of Fort Worth's Monthly Informational Forums are targeted to minority contractors. These forums will serve two purposes; 1) to ensure that firms are fully aware of opportunities to bid on City projects and 2) to identify gaps in experience/training/capabilities that we can try to address early on.

The Office of Business Diversity is here to help minority 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!

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