Guest Speaker Louis Coletti Discusses Unions at MWL Program Event

On Thursday, October 1, 2009 Louis Coletti, president and CEO of the Building Trades Employers' Association, spoke with approximately 20 qualified vendors and Construction Certificate/Mentorship Program mentees in the Jerome Greene Law School about the benefits and challenges of operating a union firm.

Coletti's presentation was a component of the certificate/mentorship program, which helps minority-, women- and locally-owned (MWL) business enterprisesĀ build capacity and earn contracting opportunities at the University. Eighteen businesses, currently certified with the city as minority- or women-owned, entered theĀ one-year pilot program in 2008. In September 2009, the University welcomed 22 new firms into the mentorship program. For more information on the program, click here.
