2017 Disparity Studies
The 2017 Minnesota Joint Disparity Study
examined whether discrimination affects minority- and women-owned firms in the marketplace and ways to address that discrimination. The study examined procurement of construction, professional services, goods, and other services in the public and private sector. The study also researched conditions for veteran-owned businesses and companies owned by persons with disabilities. The Minnesota Department of Administration coordinated this effort and Keen Independent Research led the research team.
