Lobby Day

Welcome to the Minority- and Women-Owned Business Enterprise (MWBE) Coalition website.

We are a coalition of community leaders, business owners, trade associations, and entrepreneurs bringing change to create more jobs and economic opportunities in New York State.


Right now, New York is ranked lower than 11 other states in the amount it spends with minority and women-owned businesses — only 5%. New York is one of the most ethnically diverse states in the America and has the 2nd highest number of women-owned enterprises (WBEs) and 3rd highest number of minority business enterprises (MBEs). We must ask for more of our state agencies to bring capital and opportunities to our communities.


Join business and community leaders from across New York as we talk to State Legislators about increasing access to opportunities for minority- and women-owned enterprises.


You can help us bring change that significantly increases our economic share of the billions of dollars awarded by New York State.
