Topics will include how the COVID-19 pandemic has affected business; how small and diverse businesses can position themselves for success; and upcoming projects and contract opportunities. 

“SEPTA shares the city’s goal of achieving an equitable and inclusive recovery,” said SEPTA General Manager and CEO Leslie S. Richards in a statement. “We are committed to promoting business opportunities for local, small, disadvantaged, minority and women-owned companies.”
