The City of Greensboro and B2Gnow Host A Complimentary Lunch and Learn to Increase Efficiency and Impact of Small and Diverse Business Initiatives in the State
Online PR News – 02-March-2022 – Phoenix, Arizona – The City of Greensboro is teaming up with B2Gnow - a leader in providing supplier diversity, procurement and grant management solutions for governments, contractors, and corporations for two decades – to host a complimentary lunch and learn event on April 5, 2022, for cities, counties, school districts, universities, and other supplier diversity and small business program professionals in North Carolina and surrounding areas.
There is no disputing that equal contracting opportunities are important to the fabric of life in communities. Without opportunity, there is no room for growth, and without growth, communities remain stagnant. Moreover, diverse supplier pools drive competition, promote innovation, and create opportunities that have the potential to impact communities as a whole. Perhaps most importantly, small and diverse business participation in public contracts provides the highest economic impact to local communities.
"There are complex compliance processes that are often managed manually and policies filled with convoluted language, making it difficult to ensure these opportunities are afforded to diverse vendors. We're thrilled to collaborate with The City of Greensboro to help unravel these complexities and share solutions and insight that support economic opportunities for small and diverse businesses," said Justin Talbot-Stern, CEO of B2Gnow.
“If you are struggling to efficiently monitor, track and report on your organization’s supplier diversity or small business program data or you are interested in hearing how other public-sector organizations are seamlessly managing the complex compliance, spend tracking, and reporting requirements, this event is for you,” shares Allison Staton, M/WBE Compliance Officer for the City of Greensboro - Minority/Women Business Enterprise Office.
Industry professionals are encouraged to come sit alongside their colleagues and industry experts, on April 5th, in this afternoon dedicated to education and networking while addressing topics such as:
-Examining the challenges of North Carolina supplier diversity programs and the impact of B2Gnow in supporting the city’s compliance, monitoring, tracking, reporting and digital transformation journey
-Exploring features exclusive to B2Gnow that streamline HUBSCO reporting, facilitate compatibility with financial systems, and easily support tracking participation, certification, certified directory access, and more
-Discussing strategies for removing roadblocks and obtaining buy-in and support for improvements to tools and processes for your supplier diversity or small business program
-Networking with your peers and other supplier diversity and small business program professionals and participating in interactive, thought-provoking topics related to lessons learned and best practices for all government levels in North Carolina
