Civil Rights Department hosting event to share tips on doing business with the City

The City’s Civil Rights Department is hosting a free event Wednesday, May 23 in North Minneapolis geared toward small, minority and women-owned businesses to provide information on doing business with the City of Minneapolis.

The event at 1011 W. Broadway Ave. Suite 105 will cover a range of topics, including an overview of the basics of doing business with the City, information about certifications and resources available to small, minority and women-owned businesses and upcoming business opportunities with the City.
