City of Chicago Disparity Study

The City of Chicago is conducting a disparity study for the City of Chicago to examine whether minorities and women have equal access to City construction contracting opportunities. If your firm currently works with or has tried to bid on construction contracts for the City of Chicago as a prime contractor, subcontractor or supplier, Colette Holt & Associates (“CHA”) would like to hear from you.
 
Small group business owner interviews are planned for August 2020. These focus groups will gather information to understand your experiences with the City’s Minority- and Women-Owned Business Enterprise construction contracting program and operations, including perceived race or gender-based discrimination when seeking City construction contracts or in the overall Chicago area construction industry.
 
Your participation in these sessions is important to the disparity study. CHA is partnering with Sandi Llano & Associates Inc., a recognized and respected leader in the Chicago area on supplier diversity programs. For more information about the study and opportunities to participate, please visit the study website: Chicago.disparity-study.com.
