Department of Enterprise Services: Draft Supplier Diversity Policy Workshop @ Online
Aug 18 @ 8:30 am – 4:30 pm

Washington State Department of Enterprise Services is having a policy workshop on the Draft Supplier Diversity Policy for the state. Once DES sets state policy, then all state agencies must follow it.  DES follows a democratic process where we listen to and incorporate feedback from stakeholders.  This policy only covers goods and services (not construction, grants, or client services).

Both sessions will be held virtually on Zoom. Anyone can attend either session. They will be virtually the same content.
However, the Q&A portion will be structured to allow specific groups to ask questions or provide feedback first.

View the agenda for each session here

Session 1, 8:30 AM-11:30 AM: Focus on the vendor

Questions will be taken from small, veteran, and diverse vendors first. All other vendors will have an opportunity to ask questions or provide feedback at the end of the session. Register for this session

Session 2, 1:30 PM-4:30 PM: Focus on government entities and non-profit organizations

Questions will be taken from state customers first. All other participants will have an opportunity to ask questions or provide feedback at the end of the session. Register for this session
