Alongside Horseshoe Baltimore Casino General Manager Chad Barnhill, members of the Mayor’s Coalition on Supplier and Diversity Inclusion, and representatives of this year’s Top 100 MBE®s, the mayor discussed her vision for all businesses to have the opportunity to compete and succeed in Baltimore.

Our minority-owned and women-owned business enterprises are essential to accomplishing this goal.”
