Webinar Series

The Illinois Tollway hosts a series of webinars to highlight opportunities for new firms to do business with the Tollway. The Department of Diversity and Strategic Development helps small firms, specifically minority- and veteran-owned businesses, gain access to Illinois Tollway work through several different programs and initiatives. This webinar series is designed to help these firms learn about what is offered: from business technical and prequalification assistance to workforce development initiatives and more. By expanding the pool of potential firms, the Illinois Tollway not only creates opportunities for these businesses but also serves its customers by ensuring varied and competitive bids. The Building for Success webinar series takes place every Monday at 3 p.m.
