City of Oakland Disparity Study

The City of Oakland has commenced work on its 2017 Race and Gender Disparity Study. The Study, which is being conducted by Mason Tillman Associates, Ltd., will determine if there is equity in the award of contracts and grants to local, small, minority, and women-owned businesses.

In connection with the Study, the City of Oakland will host four business outreach meetings. All businesses are invited to attend to learn about the 2017 Race and Gender Disparity Study, the certification process, and upcoming contracting opportunities. Networking with other businesses, technical assistance providers, lenders, and chambers will directly follow each meeting.
