- As part of my work with RTD I engage with owners of Small, Disadvantaged, Women, and Minority owned businesses to ensure they are aware of contracting opportunities through our agency. The networking allows for introductions to prime companies and other industry partners, creating a network for small businesses to connect with opportunities.
The Why: For me, the goal is equity. As a team member at RTD, I work towards ensuring a leveled playing field for small businesses. My community work focuses social justice, striving towards equity for all. My personal and career efforts are motivated by helping move the social dial towards that goal.
