Addressing the Disparity in 2021: Fall Forum to Provide Updates on Status of Disparity Study Recommendations

Tuesday, November 09, 2021

City Council Member Sabrina Wooten will host the second Addressing the Disparity in 2021 forum to update the community about the status of recommendations from the City's 2018 disparity study. The event will be held Thursday, Nov. 18, 2021, at 6:30 p.m. at The Hive, 4636 Columbus Street, Suite 100, in Virginia Beach. This in-person event is free and open to the public.

"The City's 2018 disparity study focused on several actions we can take to increase and improve our contracting efforts for minority and women-owned firms," said Wooten. "I look forward to educating our residents on efforts since our last forum in February on where we are with these key initiatives and what steps we are taking to fight the disparity."

A panel of participants will provide updates in their respective areas and then field questions from the audience.  Attendees are encouraged to RSVP in advance here or at: www.eventbrite.com/e/addressing-the-disparity-2021-forum-tickets-207176599787.
