Our organization has an extensive history dating back to 1973. We are constantly moving forward and evolving, but none of what we do would be possible without acknowledging where we've been. Here is a brief history of the past that shaped us.  

Why Does

There is a socioeconomic gap that is invisible to many, but impacts where we all live, work and play.  This socioeconomic gap reduces trust, creates social conflict, and creates inaccurate assumptions that prevent communities from thriving.  The horizontal gap is between historically underrepresented ethnic minorities and their non-ethnic minority colleagues and neighbors.

We address the horizontal gap between historically underrepresented ethnic minorities and non-ethnic individuals through a commitment to Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) principles. We provide education, training, and business advocacy to historically underrepresented ethnic minority businesses looking to expand their operations, and we collaborate with larger buying organizations interested in diversifying their supply chain. Pursuing this mission, we strive to reduce waste, minimize costs, broaden buying perspectives, and promote inclusivity, economic growth, and sustainable business practices within the broader business landscape.
