Inside the Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Committee

Posted .

The Four Seasons New Orleans team works to create a model DBE Program in partnership with the City of New Orleans.

 

The Carpenter-Woodward team, developers of the Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences New Orleans, is firmly committed to creating a cutting edge DBE program, which was central to our winning proposal. Our team has created a DBE Committee that is comprised of representatives from the City of New Orleans’ Office of Supplier Diversity, members of our local equity investor team, and executives from Woodward Design+Build. We meet monthly and are confident that this approach will be a model for all future city projects and will serve to provide good paying jobs and economic opportunities for the community and local businesses.

As we build this transformative program, we will continue to give the community a look inside our discussions, challenges, and progress on our pathway to prosperity.
