Business consultants, minority and small business

Business consultants are subject matter experts responding to inquiries and requests from employers, trade associations, or employer representatives. They are speakers and advocates on BWC initiatives, and presenters for our monthly employer educational webinars.  

Request a speaker or meeting with one of the business consultants. Someone will get back to you within five business days.

The minority and small business advocate (MSBA) works to establish relationships with certified minority business operators and small businesses. Services include educational webinars and individualized policy reviews. The MSBA also serves as BWC ambassador at various meetings and conferences for the minority and small business community.
