Facilitating Growth for Minority-owned Businesses: How rethinking supplier diversity and creating results-driven processes will achieve revenue parity


The MMSDC commissioned research from, a provider of supplier diversity solutions, to assess the growth rate of minority business enterprises (MBEs) and determine the gap that remains in the revenue parity for MBEs relative to the number of minorities in the US.
