After Several Delays, D/FW Airport’s Diversity Program is Flying High

When Ken Capps took on the helm of the public affairs office at Dallas/Fort Worth Airport in September 2001 one of the first items he planned to address was the D/FW Airport's
Minority and Women Owned Businesses Enterprise (M/WBE) program, which, after more than a decade, had yet to really take off. A study commissioned by the D/FW Airport found that
minority- and women-owned businesses got less than their share of contracts at the airport from 1993 through 1999.
