Last week, the Midwest Supplier Diversity Planning Committee held their annual Midwest Supplier Diversity Exposition at the Metropolitan Community College, Park College Campus.

Seven years ago, the exposition was created to provide minority-owned businesses with a venue to showcase their products and services and network with other vendors/suppliers with whom they can do business. The event also provided major corporations an opportunity to identify diverse businesses to help them fulfill minority participation on their projects.

The free event highlighted businesses that are minority-, women-, LGBTQ-, veteran- and service disabled veteran-owned.

Among those businesses showcased were The Community Voice, Parrish and Sons Construction, Paradise Travel Services, Devotions Boutique and Sentimental Moodz.

Hats off to Chris Kelly, Program Coordinator Supplier Diversity at MCC for another successful expo.
