As the 2016 NMSDC Council of the Year, we will leverage our past successes and foster future innovation by streamlining and carry forward the best of HMSDC programs and introducing new programs and services that define the future of minority business development. We are launching new technology and increasing our proficiency with key business applications to continually improve our service delivery to our MBE suppliers and Corporate members of the Council.
The Houston Minority Supplier Development Council (HMSDC) is excited and committed to the success of our MBE suppliers and our Corporate Members. We are positioned to help MBEs be attractive to our corporate members and to set a certification and education bar that concretely demonstrates the strength and depth of our MBEs. HMSDC continues to maintain and develop a strong cadre of programs that meet today’s challenges and positions our MBEs for unprecedented success.
To that end, we are changing our staffing paradigm to a direct hire model which after study we believe will result in a more cost effective and consistent staff to ensure service delivery, improve and diversify skill sets of our employees as we look to create a staff that is as dynamic, diverse and as unique as our members. Here is where we need your help. The Council is seeking to fill several positions with qualified candidates to help us deliver services to you! If you know potential candidates that the HMSDC should consider, please direct them to our website to review the job descriptions available through this link HMSDC Careers.
Thank you for your assistance in finding the best candidates to help us continue serving you and delivering on the mission of HMSDC to actively involve its members in efforts that will increase and expand business opportunities and business growth for Minority Business Enterprises and to drive excellence in supplier diversity and supplier development.
Capacity Building Model Certificate Program
The powerful, new online certificate program is a partnership of Rutgers University and Houston Minority Supplier Development Council (HMSDC). With easy-to-use learning tools, you’ll develop a customized Capacity Building Model (CBM) program with the power to increase the strength and impact of a supplier development program. Through course assignments, you’ll build strategic alliances as you design a smart, forward-thinking supplier development program through CBM
HMSDC Economic Impact
Early in 2015 the Houston Minority Supplier Development Council (HMSDC) retained The Institute for Thought Diversity to assist the Council in conducting a study to assess the economic impact that HMSDC certified Minority Business Enterprises (MBEs) have on Houston, the most populous city in the state of Texas, and the fourth most populous in the United States. This impact includes the increased business activity created by the 677 MBEs of HMSDC, the jobs that are maintained/created as a result of this activity throughout the various sectors of the state’s economy, and the incremental business taxes that are generated at the local, state and national levels.
