A MESSAGE FROM THE COUNCIL PRESIDENT
The New York New Jersey Minority Supplier Development Council honors the achievements of minority women and their contribution to the development of our country and expansion of our economy this and every month. According to a study done by American Express OPEN, Minority women-owned firms grew 156 percent over the past sixteen years and now account for one in three women-owned firms in the United States. What is more, employment by companies owned by minority female entrepreneurs was up by 10% and their revenues grew by 63%. Our Council continues with its mission of working with these businesses and all of our business clients, providing increased entrepreneurial development opportunities so that these businesses can continue to grow and flourish.
Terrence Clark, President
