Suffolk Construction will be launching a new comprehensive program designed to enhance the capabilities of Supplier Diversity Office (SDO)-certified businesses. The Suffolk Construction Subcontractor Development Series is a seven-session program that will assist subcontractors in cultivating long-term growth; strengthen the capacity of disadvantaged, minority, and women business enterprises; and foster relationships with Suffolk, the largest general contractor in New England. The unique program begins on September 13 and will be provided at no cost to thirty selected participants.

The Subcontractor Development Series will be a part of Suffolk’s award-winning Learning & Development program, which continues to set the industry standard for construction training initiatives. The series will be offered exclusively to fifteen union and fifteen non-union subcontractors that are certified by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts as a Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE), Minority Business Enterprise (MBE), or Women Owned Business Enterprise (WBE). Firms must also have been in business for a minimum of two years.

Participants will obtain core construction management and business skills, ranging from risk management and financials to safety and scheduling. Each two-hour course will be presented in an interactive format and led by Suffolk personnel and local industry experts. Upon successful completion of the program, participants will receive a graduation certificate and have one-on-one access to Suffolk subject matter experts.

Classes will take place every Thursday from 6-8pm at Suffolk’s newly renovated, state-of-the-art Conference and Learning Center in Roxbury, Massachusetts. All eligible firms are encouraged to apply. The application deadline is August 10 at 5pm EDT, and selected participants will be notified by 5pm EDT on August 24. Space will be limited.
