National Minority Enterprise Development (MED) Week

Since 1983, the U.S. President has issued a proclamation designating a National Minority Enterprise Development Week in order to recognize the contributions of the minority business community to the U.S. economy.

For 35 years, Minority Business Development Agency (MBDA) has led the National Minority Enterprise Development (MED) Week program to convene business leaders, honor outstanding Minority Business Enterprises (MBEs) and advocates, promote business opportunities and report industry trends.

Kansas Department of Commerce Recognizes MED Week
