The Minneapolis Public School District is committed to providing business opportunities for Minority and Women Business Enterprises (M/WBEs) and other diverse businesses. We realize that utilizing M/WBEs and diverse businesses is essential to our future success. We serve a student, parent and community base with a wide range of backgrounds and increasingly diverse needs. In serving these needs it is critical that we forge lasting relationships with diverse business partners in order to create mutually beneficial relationships. We are committed to cultivating relationships with M/WBEs and diverse businesses and working to incorporate these businesses into our network of business partners. The MPS Business Diversity Strategy is designed to foster relationships and create business opportunities for the most qualified diverse suppliers that will help us achieve our goals.
