Resorts World plays host to MWBE forum

Last week, Councilwoman Adrienne Adams hosted a forum for small businesses and minority and women-owned business enterprises (MWBEs) at Resorts World Casino NYC.

The panelists included SBS Commissioner Gregg Bishop, Jonnel Doris, director of the Mayor’s Office for MWBEs, QEDC Deputy Director Ricardi Calixte, Queens Chamber of Commerce’s Tom Grech and Dr. Simone Lord of the Southeast Queens Chamber of Commerce.

The event focused on networking and resources for the small business community, particularly MWBEs.

“Small businesses and M/WBEs are the backbone of our community,” Adams said, “and our thriving economy so it is important to understand the challenges these business owners face and help provide the resources that allow them to thrive.”
