Just as companies have pledged to be more intentional about their hiring practices, many companies are being even more deliberate about purchasing goods and services from diverse suppliers. C – Suite leaders are realizing that partnering with diverse companies provide a Return on Investment (ROI) both internally and externally. This is about equity in the business community and doubling down on building up the economic viability of minority business enterprises. 

This session will focus on how Supplier Diversity Professionals can engage their executive leadership team in understanding the long-term benefits of supplier diversity both socially and economically, while providing some real-life examples of how to successfully move your organization to achieve actionable results.  

Our goal is to provide a robust experience for attendees and shift away from the typical panel discussion or workshop in which participants are spoken to for an hour. We have created a model suited to adult learning styles and practical applications that we are looking for speakers to incorporate.
