Title: Mohler Receives Lifetime Achievement Award from Bmorenews.com

Highlights County’s Minority and Women’s Business Enterprise Program

Baltimore County Executive Don Mohler was a recipient of Bmorenews.com’s Joe Manns Lifetime Achievement Award which was presented yesterday, November 8, during the National Black Wall Street Summit 2018. The daylong event, presented by Bmorenews.com in conjunction with the Greater Baltimore Urban League, featured business and civic leaders who came together to discuss viable, proactive solutions to the challenges facing African American-owned businesses.

“I am honored to receive this special award from Doni Glover who continues to celebrate African American entrepreneurs and professionals and provide resources and networking opportunities for their success,” said Mohler. “Baltimore County will continue to take a leadership role in fostering access to economic opportunity for all businesses, including those that are minority and women-owned.”

As Mohler accepted his award, he highlighted the County’s Minority and Women's Business Enterprise (MBE/WBE) program, noting:

  • 2018 Disparity Study (for period 2013-2018)
  • Achievement of the highest MBE/WBE subcontracting participation, since the inception of the program, by reaching 20% participation from all departments collectively in FY 2018
  • 2018 “Meet the Primes” event boasted highest attendance since its inception. The purpose of this event is to facilitate a business-to-business networking venue to open the dialogue between primes and potential subcontractors.  Primes come prepared to discuss their prequalification requirements and upcoming projects. Potential subcontractors come to market their business.

Additional award recipients include Baltimore Council Chairman Julian Jones, former U.S. Congressman and former NAACP CEO Kweisi Mfume, former Baltimore City Mayor Sheila Dixon and AFRO American Newspaper Publisher and CEO Emeritus Jake Oliver.
