Lambert-St. Louis International Airport is holding a Business Diversity Forum on March 27 to help local businesses get connected with new job and career opportunities.

The forum is free and will be held from 8 a.m. – 12 noon in the B Concourse of Terminal 1. Forum attendees can park free of charge in the Terminal 1 Garage. The forum is sponsored by the Airport’s Business Diversity Development Office, formerly the DBE Programs office.

The Airport requires a full range of contractors and service providers in its day-to-day operations. Airport Director Rhonda Hamm-Niebruegge and other key staff will highlight contracting opportunities within the areas of construction and engineering, supplies and material management, airport operations and airport concessions.

Businesses connected with professional services such as accounting, HR management, legal, PR/marketing, as well as personnel staffing are also encouraged to attend. The forum also offers a networking opportunity with a number of business owners already providing services to the Airport. These business owners are familiar with working in the airport environment or may be looking for partners or sub-contractors.

A key focus for the event will also highlight requirements for federal and local certification for minority and women-owned businesses. Amber Gooding, Lambert’s Business Diversity Development Office Director, will also explain new iniatives for her office that will help raise awareness to the importance of developing strategic alliances, financial resources and improving back office skills.
