The County of San Mateo and the GCAP team are committed to engaging the public meaningfully as part of the Supplier Diversity Study. The study team will host various events throughout the course of the Study to help the public understand the purpose of the Study and to offer opportunities for the public and various stakeholders to submit comments about their experiences with, and perceptions of, working in San Mateo County.
The events schedule will be updated regularly. Please check back periodically for those updates.
Public Meetings. The study team will conduct six public meetings with at least two to be held in person and four virtually:
- Four public meetings will be held near the start of the Study to explain the purpose and approach of the Study, introduce the study team, and to allow local business owners, trade associations, and other knowledgeable individuals the opportunity to provide input. There will be a formal presentation followed by a Q&A session to allow attendees to share verbal or written comments.
- Two public meetings will be conducted at the end of the study period. The purpose of the meetings is to share findings and recommendations and provide business owners, trade associations, and other knowledgeable individuals the opportunity to provide feedback.
- Information and comments collected at the public meetings will be anonymously integrated into the Supplier Diversity Study
