NEW YORK, NY DECEMBER 19, 2016 - The New York State Coalition of Hispanic Chambers of Commerce will honor three of the cities’ champions for minority and women business enterprise at the first annual Minority Business Advocate Christmas party. 

Wendy Garcia, new chief diversity officer of NYC Comptroller Scott Stringer, Michael Owh, director of mayor’s Office of Contract Services and Jonnel Doris, senior advisor and director of the mayor’s MWBE program will all be recognized at the networking event on Tuesday, December 20, 2016. 

This is an opportunity for our African American, Asian and Hispanic business members to meet and mingle with the decision makers of diversity contract distribution for our city in a festive and celebratory environment,” said Frank Garcia, president of the NYS Coalition of Hispanic Chambers of Commerce. 


The NYS Coalition Chamber of Hispanic Chambers was one of several key business organizations across the city that campaigned for the 30 percent MWBE goal that has been implemented on all New York City contracts. 


“This event is an acknowledgement of that goal, but it’s also a challenge to ensure that we capitalize on this policy as we transition into the New Year, “ said Garcia. 


The Minority Business Advocate Christmas event will be held 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at IESE Business School University of Navarra, 165 West 57th Street.
