Women and minority procurement: Atlanta's approach

Women and minority procurement: Atlanta's approach thumbnail

Nearly 40 years ago, the government of Atlanta adopted sweeping and bold economic development policies to stabilize the city’s economy and expand business and job opportunities. Then-mayor Maynard Jackson, Jr., the first African American mayor of a major United States city, championed the Equal Economic Opportunity Programme, opening municipal procurement to the more than half of the business population previously locked out of city business due to discriminatory policies and practices based on race and gender. His leadership changed the economic fabric of the city for black people, other minorities and women. Between 1974 and 1981, the proportion of contracts awarded by the city to women and minorities increased from a meagre 1% to an average of 24%, worth more than US$ 600 million. In those eight years, nine pieces of legislation designed to ensure minority and female business participation were adopted by the city council, including a law requiring 25% of projects to be filled by minority- and women-owned firms. This has led to, conservatively, US$ 2.5 billion in contracts awarded to women and minority businesses since 1974. As greater Atlanta has grown to over 5 million people, it has become a model for American cities, states and federal agencies. Women and minorities have participated in the growth of business enterprises, increasing their wealth and expanding their capacity and experience, and the city’s procurement policies laid the foundation for this success. The data speak for themselves. The United States Census reports that Georgia has led the country in the number of women-owned businesses over the past 14 years. The number of women-owned businesses in the state nearly doubled between 1997 and 2011, according to the recent State of Women-Owned Businesses Report. Georgia now has an estimated 287,500 women-owned businesses, ranking it sixth in the United States, up from tenth in 1997 when it had 145,576. According to the National Association of Women Business Owners, Georgia ranks first in number, employment and sales for women-owned firms. Mayor Jackson set the stage for hundreds of minority and female entrepreneurs to participate in thousands of business transactions, to employ thousands of people, to grow their businesses and to contribute to the economic health of the city, state and nation. These men and women are among the most active civic leaders in the state, contributing their resources, money and talent to charity, politics and civic life. The Atlanta model reverses the centuries-old history of discrimination against women and African Americans in business and seeks to empower them to succeed and contribute as employers, taxpayers and civic leaders.  Supporting women- and minority-owned BUSINESSES through procurement and policy: What worked?  1) Sustained commitment – Every Atlanta mayor and city council since 1974 has championed the programme. This lasting commitment has led to dramatic change. 2) Compelling vision – The City of Atlanta defined an inspiring vision of inclusion that was easy for citizens to understand and embrace.

You are involved in researching your next career move. You’ve probably already seen the benefits of Franchising if you haven’t already decided a franchise would give you the best chance for success. If Your decision to purchase a franchise has already been made, I’d like to personally congratulate you and welcome you to consider the single greatest change in business since the franchise was created. The Virtual Franchise! While the local franchise business model is certainly still valid and is potentially a way to create a financial dynasty, the Internet and Mobile & Social marketing in particular have dramatically shifted the power of the small business Online. Our Virtual Franchise Model is built on a foundation as solid as the brick and mortar encasing the local franchise. Our franchises are real businesses, selling real products. They are businesses that can be scaled significantly farther and easier than any local business franchise model ever could. You can sell your business or hire “managers’ to run the day to day operations. Anything you can do with a physical business, the Virtual Franchise Model can do, only better. One of the most important keys to being successful with selling on Amazon is being able to choose the right products with the most profit potential.If you end up choosing the wrong product, you will inevitably waste a lot of time (and money). Of course, making mistakes can be a good thing… but let’s be honest, wouldn’t it be good to get it right first time?Without doubt one of the hardest and most time consuming parts of this whole process is finding product opportunities. Amazon is a VAST marketplace, and trying to find great product opportunities can be extremely difficult. We have coached many people over the past 6 months, and this is the #1 issue that people have.That’s exactly why as a Huna Marketing Franchisee, we spend the research time to select the right product(s) for you.   Our expertise at selecting product  is only the beginning… Once you find a fast moving Amazon Product, how do you compete in this market?  Most Amazon sellers are using the old “e-bay” “me too” model.  Or if a bit more savvy, they figure out the key to competing with the “big players” and actually find a good wholesale source, they almost always miss the boat when it comes to distribution. Below you will read about our model for success, the second component is finding a reliable and cost efficient […]
