Business Outreach Programs

Irvine Outreach and Training Series Program for Minority- and Women-Owned Businesses:

The City of Irvine, in its commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion, has developed an outreach and training program for women-owned and minority-owned businesses. This program is designed to expand your members’ awareness of the City’s:

  • Bidding opportunities
  • How to get started and register as a vendor
  • Procurement processes
  • Engagement

Additionally, we will dedicate a significant portion of the training time to listen to your member’s thoughts, possible concerns, and answer any questions they may have. This is a great opportunity for your members and our Purchasing Team to have direct communication in a private training session.

Our goals are to educate, expand awareness, and of course increase the diversity of firms that choose to participate in our bidding opportunities. Growing and developing our business partnerships is a key priority for the City.

We have numerous training dates to choose from. Please click here to select a training date and time.
