A model for exemplary service, the Office of Minority and Women's Business Enterprises
(OMWBE) promotes equity and increases participation in public contracting and procurement for small businesses owned by minorities, women, and disadvantaged persons. To accomplish our mission, the OMWBE certifies small businesses owned and controlled by minorities, women, and disadvantaged persons and works with the state's purchasing and contracting community to provide education throughout the state. The results are positive impacts in the community that lend to a better economy and strengthen the resilience of families and ultimately improving the overall quality of life.
Governor's Subcabinet on Business Diversity
Supporting small and minority, women's and veteran-owned businesses in state contracting is a priority for Governor Inslee. As a result, he created the subcabinet on business diversity. The creation of this Communications Consultant 5
position is a direct result of this effort and will expand support for diverse business owners.
The Communications Consultant 5 (CC5) serves as the overall lead on the agency's strategic communications. The role also provides significant contribution in the area of tactical support to OMWBE. The importance of having this content be relevant, accurate, and timely is especially critical due its nature and its reach to external and internal stakeholders. The scope of work is extensive and includes such areas as overseeing media interactions, planning stakeholder outreach campaigns, written and visual communications, developing performance metrics, and advising on agency responses as it relates to supplier diversity and certification programs.
Moreover, the CC5 will coordinate a multi-agency communication team that supports the Governor's Subcabinet on Business Diversity to plan, develop, and execute communications related to the Subcabinet.
