As part of our mission to support small, women-, and minority-owned businesses, AmeriHealth Caritas sponsored a town hall in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, on October 17. Titled “Risk and Reward: Minority-Owned Businesses and the Growth Paradox,” the town hall featured local and state leaders in a panel discussion that:
- Highlighted the benefits of partnering with small and diverse businesses, and their impact on the local economy.
- Identified the challenges and obstacles that minority-owned businesses face.
- Explored current and future programs that promote continued growth for these companies.
- Defined the traits that these businesses need to succeed, and the characteristics that large companies look for in their minority-owned partners.
