CA LGBTQ Caucus Agrees: Minimum 1.5% Goal at CPUC
LGBTQ businesses contribute more than $1.7 trillion to the US economy, yet biases within some industry sectors still create barriers to entry for many LGBTQ business owners. BuildOUT California welcomes the support of the California Legislative LGBTQ Caucus in our efforts to establish a 1.5% utilization goal for California utilities to do business with LGBT firms. "Set the procurement goal at a minimum of 1.5% for LGBTQ businesses... we believe the CPUC must establish aspirational procurement goals to ensure that the LGBTQ community is not marginalized or subjected to discrimination. We strongly recommend that you send a serious message to the utilities that the only way to move forward is through the inclusion of all Californians." - California Legislative LGBTQ Caucus
