Where commerce meets social justice

MWBE Business Resources

The New York State Division of Minority and Women’s Business Development has a variety of resources that are worth exploring.

Their mission is to promote equality of economic opportunities for “minority and women’s business development”, which basically means they help people get connected with state contracts.

On their website you can get resources and information on how to get contracts.

But it’s not always that easy to navigate the details of state contracts – so if you have any questions please reach out to gladys@businessleadersofcolors.com

Here are some docs about the program.

About Gladys Brangman

I am at my best when serving others and have set out to make the local small business world more profitable by offering support services and networking opportunities. My most recent venture is Business Leaders of Colors (BLOC) a local network designed to support small businesses. I believe that if business owners of color(s) are going to thrive they needed to be aware of and support one another. A gathering to celebrate Black History Month three years ago, transformed into a network that transformed into a business. BLOC offers reduced cost business and financial training, marketing, a web presence, and networking opportunities.
