Our 1.5% LGBT utilization goal receives Palm Springs Mayor Christy Holstege's Support



BuildOUT California welcomes the support of Palm Springs Mayor Christy Holstege in urging the California Public Utilities Commission to set the procurement goal for LGBT-owned business enterprises at 1.5%.


"The goal should be representative of the LGBT community’s impact on the state… California’s LGBT community represents more than five percent of the State population and well above the national average… Aspirational goals need to be set and encouraged. That starts by setting a Utility Supplier Diversity goal of at least 1.5 percent for the LGBT community." - Palm Springs Mayor Christy Holstege
