Governor’s Weekly Message: Supporting Supplier Diversity to Encourage Increased Business Growth

Former Governor Jack Markell (2009-2017) | Kent County | New Castle County | Sussex County | Date Posted: Friday, February 27, 2015



(Hockessin, DE) – In his weekly message, filmed at Star-Med in Hockessin, Governor Markell addresses ongoing efforts
to support the supplier diversity community in Delaware.

“Executive Order 44, signed last spring, ensures businesses owned by individuals with disabilities and certain small
businesses are able to successfully compete for state contracts as certified diverse suppliers,” said Governor
Markell. “It builds on previous efforts to support minority, women and veteran-owned businesses throughout the state,
which, combined, has resulted in nearly a 200% increase in Delaware’s supplier diversity community over the past six
years.”

Every week, the Governor’s office releases a new Weekly Message in video, audio, and transcript form. The message is
