Over 400 people joined Supervisor Mark Ridley-Thomas this week at a Small Business Forum which addressed opportunities for Small Business Enterprises (SBE) and local workers to secure work on the Martin Luther King, Jr. (MLK) Medical Center Replacement projects.
Forty-five exhibitors, including the four finalists for the design-build contracts, were present. Representatives from the Los Angeles World Airports and Metropolitan Water District were also present to share other job opportunities. The forum connected SBEs and local workers with resources including bonding, access to capital, certification, technical assistance, and contractor training.
Last week, Ridley-Thomas led an effort before the Board of Supervisors to establish a local worker hiring policy and small business enterprise program for both projects at the new MLK medical center.
