Leadership Series 4.0: Supplier Diversity

Apr 27, 2023



8:45 AM


The term diversity has evolved over the last decade, but never quite as fast as it has in the last 2 years. While a few years back supplier diversity primarily referred to suppliers from underrepresented groups like women owned businesses, or small-scale businesses or minority owned businesses, today the realm of diversity has expanded to far more communities. It is no longer a choice, but an imperative for an organization to be consciously selective of their suppliers and give back to the customers by paving the way for underserved communities to shine. This day will tackle how supplier diversity strategy not just helps the suppliers but also your supply chain operations and customer expectation management.

The Leadership Series 3.0: Supplier Diversity was attended by 500+ supply chain professionals last year. And 20+ speakers from the industry who are driving supplier relations across multiple communities.
