Understanding the Complexities of the Disadvantaged Business Enterprise Program (DBE) to Create Sustainable Opportunity

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


Developing a transformative DBE program requires collaboration and dialogue that take a deep dive into past complexities. Carpenter-Woodward, the developers of the Four Seasons Hotel and Private Residences New Orleans, is working with the City of New Orleans to execute a DBE program that will be a prime example of the new way to maximize DBE involvement and opportunity. We have clear goals and hiring requirements as developed by the City of New Orleans as well as our internal DBE committee. Our commitment is to reach and exceed these goals.

We will continue to give the community a look inside our discussions, challenges, and progress on our pathway to prosperity.
