Diversity Essay Topic:
"Within the government contracting space, diversity initiatives are encouraged, but are sometimes perceived as being too difficult and costly to administer. However, small business inclusion initiatives can sometimes achieve the same outcome with minimal or no additional costs or effort. Has your organization focused on small business inclusion in your contracting activity, and if so, has that effort been successful in terms of contractual cost savings and/or adding diversity to your qualified vendor pool?
