APB and Associates’ Senior Program Manager, Dawn Mayes of the Guardians Renovation Project led a 3-part Series Workshop in July & August of 2022. 

Dawn’s role as senior program manager is to ensure DEI is embedded throughout the entire Construction project. In order to be successful in this, it requires strategic planning and execution, as well as anticipated insight of challenges or opportunities that may arise throughout the project. Her role is to also build a viable pipeline of residents, small businesses and youth towards job opportunities, apprenticeships, internships, and exposure to growth and expansion

As small community businesses thrive so does our community as a whole. Small businesses are often scrambling for crumbs on bigger projects. Unaware to how to properly enter a bid, network with larger companies and hold mentors accountable to promises made.
