The project team engages the community to determine the experiences of Non-MBEs and MBEs in attempting to do business with the District and in the marketplace. We seek to gain insight and information from various perspectives by conducting one-on-one interviews, focus groups, public hearings, and community meetings. The engagement with the community will begin January/February 2022.
During the public hearing and community meetings, Miller3 will present information about the disparity study, answer any questions, and solicit participants for any verbal or written testimony that they would like to share about their experiences working in the marketplace. Further details including specific dates, times, and locations of the meetings will be available soon. Please participate and make sure your insights are included as part of the process!
