Message from Deputy Commissioner

Minority and Women's Business Enterprises Deputy Commissioner Terrie Daniel

I’m excited about 2014 and the opportunities this year will bring. As this agency moves forward, my goal is to provide more visibility of the available opportunities to do business with the State of Indiana, and also provide resources, educational and otherwise, to help grow your business.

The more business owners I speak with, makes me realize more and more that we are better off because of our differences and when those differences are realized, all of us in the great State of Indiana benefit. I’ve coined a phrase that states, ”Supplier Diversity is just the right thing to do!” and here at the State of Indiana Division of Minority and Women's Business Enterprises, we are committed to doing it right!

May you prosper and be fulfilled in all you do.

Terrie F. Daniel
Deputy Commissioner
