Sustainability Problem and Proposed Solution: 

There is a lack of engagement with small and marginalized businesses within public contracting, including those owned by minorities, women, people with disabilities, native members of the LGBTQI community, etc. This perpetuates inequality seen in the marketplace and contributes to disparities in business outcomes. My research informs ways in which the University of California can offer increased access to contract opportunities and the removal of structural barriers for disadvantaged businesses.
