Gov. Kathy Hochul announced that the 2022 Minority- and Women-Owned Business Enterprise Forum will be held October 6-7 at the Albany Capital Center. The theme for this year’s forum is “Building an Equitable Future.” 

The annual New York State Minority-and Women-Owned Business Enterprise Forum provides opportunities across industries to forge new professional connections and become more competitive in an ever-changing market. This year’s forum will utilize a hybrid format with virtual sessions and in-person opportunities, with attendees representing small businesses, prime contractors, lenders, elected officials, and members of the governor’s cabinet to discuss state contracting opportunities. 

The 2022 Forum will be a multi-day hybrid approach, mixing in-person events and online sessions. Programs will include panels, working sessions, and both live and virtual meetups for networking opportunities. The growing list of programs will address a wide range of topics, from accessing capital to emerging opportunities for MWBEs in the growing cannabis industry.
