Should diversity matter to when it comes to purchasing decision-making? Should small, woman-owned and minority companies be included in the purchasing process? Two cities in Hampton Roads say "yes" - and each has conducted a disparity study to evaluate its policies and procedures. On the next Another View, we talk with representatives from the Portsmouth School System and the city of Hampton about their studies, the results, and what has been done to level the playing field in the procurement process. Our guests include Dr. Mark Whitaker, Chair, Minority Business Committee, Portsmouth Public School Board; Bruce Williams, Vice President, Economic Justice, 200-Plus Men; and Jessica Spencer, Minority Business Coordinator with the city of Hampton's Department of Economic Development. And Lisa Godley shares the history of the Hayden School and its new purpose today! It's all on Another View, Friday, March 29 at noon on 89.5 WHRV-FM, or stream us at whrv.org.
