NEED FOR THE LONG ISLAND
COMMUNITY AND ECONOMIC
DEVELOPMENT CONFERENCE
This forum will facilitate small businesses having
the opportunity to network with Federal, State,
City & Local Gov’t. Contract Decision Makers. Also,
this educational venue will provide tools for
M/WBE’s to position themselves for projects with
entities that are actively pursuing supplier-diversity
relationships. The non-profit arena is also in need
of information regarding community development
opportunities and funding. Conferences of this
magnitude are traditionally in New York City and
we find this is an ideal time to bring this wealth of
knowledge to Long Island’s business sector.
NEED FOR THE LONG ISLAND
COMMUNITY AND ECONOMIC
DEVELOPMENT CONFERENCE
The Empire State Development Disparity Report
indicates how the M/WBE audience continues to
be underutilized. Through our conferences
continued education and exposure for M/WBE to
pursue contract opportunities we are confident
these present statistics will take a more positive
trend in Long Island’s near future.
NEED FOR THE LONG ISLAND
COMMUNITY AND ECONOMIC
DEVELOPMENT CONFERENCE
The NYS Department of Economic Development
was commissioned to conduct a statewide
disparity study regarding the participation of
minority and women owned business enterprises
in state contracts. The Department was also
authorized to examine the past and current status
of minority-owned and women-owned business
enterprises (“M/WBEs”) in the geographic and
product markets for contracting and procurement
of the State of New York (hereinafter “the State”
or “NYS”). The 2010 study finds both statistical
and anecdotal evidence of business discrimination
against M/WBEs in the State’s relevant market
area.
NEED FOR THE LONG ISLAND
COMMUNITY AND ECONOMIC
DEVELOPMENT CONFERENCE
Next, we analyzed race and sex
disparities in business owner
earnings. We observed large, adverse
and statistically significant business
owner earnings disparities for AfricanAmericans, Hispanics, Asians, Native
Americans, and non-minority women
consistent with the presence of
discrimination in these markets.
NEED FOR THE LONG ISLAND
COMMUNITY AND ECONOMIC
DEVELOPMENT CONFERENCE
Finally, as a further check on the statistical findings we examined
evidence from the Census Bureau’s Survey of Business Owners and
Self-Employed Persons (SBO). This data indicates large, adverse,
and statistically significant disparities between M/WBEs’ share of
overall revenues and their share of overall firms in the U.S. as a
whole, and in the states of New York, New Jersey, and
Connecticut. The size of the disparities facing minority and
female-owned firms in these three states is striking. For example,
although 6.65 percent of all firms in these three states are owned
by African Americans, they earn barely 1.0 percent of all sales and
receipts. African-American employer firms are 1.9 percent of the
total but earn only 0.8 percent of sales and receipts. Disparities
for women and for other minority groups are also very large in
these three states.
Clearly, this report indicates a much needed Long Island
Community and Economic Development Conference which
addresses this disparity report concerns.
The additional component of educating the non-profit sector will
also empower these organizations in creating a strong community
economic paradigm.
THE CONFERENCE PROGRAM
The Long Island Community and Economic
Development Conference will engage New York
State and the L.I. business community, local
municipalities, governmental agencies, elected
officials, policy-makers, educational & financial
institutions, non-profit groups, social/ civic
organizations and residents. At this event,
conversations from these roundtables will
culminate into strategies, an action plan, best
practices review, ideas for systems
enhancements and implementation. We are
asking your support for the cost of the program.
The sponsorship outline indicates how your
organization will be acknowledged for supporting
the program.
THE CONFERENCE PROGRAM
Financial support requested through this proposal will

effectiveness through the roundtable conversations,
educational forum, marketing materials describing the

experts that will conduct conference sessions.
