Minority Enterprise Development Week Starts
Kansas Ag Connection - 10/09/2018

Governor Jeff Colyer, M.D., has proclaimed this week to be "Minority Enterprise Development Week."

The week will serve as a reminder of the many contributions and achievements of minority and women owned businesses in the state of Kansas.

According to the proclamation, this was done in order to celebrate the vital role minority and women businesses play in the Kansas economy, to recognize the outstanding civic and social leadership shown by women and minority entrepreneurs, and to encourage the growth of minority and women owned businesses across the state.

"This week offers us the opportunity to recognize the several outstanding minority and women owned businesses in Kansas," said Governor Jeff Colyer, M.D. "It's important to recognize that these businesses make Kansas a better place by giving back to their communities, creating jobs, and improving the lives of Kansans."

The week will end with the 34th Annual Minority and Women Business Awards Luncheon, taking place in the Maner Conference center of the Capital Plaza Hotel in Topeka on Oct. 11, with doors opening at 11:30 a.m.

The event will recognize 13 companies and three individuals for their support of Kansas minority and women-owned businesses and their efforts to create new opportunities.
