About MED Week
Since 1983, The U.S. President has proclaimed a national MED Week observance to recognize the outstanding accomplishments of minority business enterprises and to honor those corporations and financial institutions supporting minority business development.
Durham’s MED Week celebrates the achievements of minority entrepreneurs and affirms government, business and community organizations’ commitment to the principle of equal opportunity. Our theme for 2022 is being finalized. The mission of Durham's MED Week is to recognize and celebrate the contributions of minority and women owned businesses to the economic vibrancy of our community and promote their continued growth and success. Through a week-long series of educational outreach and recognition events, we proudly support the development of diverse businesses in Durham.
