Please join us as we continue the conversation about how to create an equitable and inclusive Volpe redevelopment. At this workshop, we will discuss how we can help BIPOC retailers overcome barriers of entry and create a retail community that is welcoming.
A panel discussion will be held to help identify the conditions to attract and ensure success of minority-owned businesses at Volpe. Future equity workshops will be held on the topics of open space, employment, and housing.
