What Our Stakeholders Say
“ The Mid-States staff has been very helpful in providing resources for us to identify qualified minority vendors. They also make it easy for supplier diversity professionals to not only engage with Mid-States certified MBEs but other diverse suppliers as well by inviting them to Mid-States events. This makes my job easier and helps me meet our XBE goals.”
