In 2021 and beyond, supplier diversity should be a top priority for organisations looking to meet the high demands of today’s consumers. Inclusive procurement practices ensure your supply chain equitably supports underrepresented minorities, LGBTQ, disabled, veterans and women-owned businesses. 

Supplier diversity not only demonstrates corporate values, something customers are looking for, but promotes innovation and can aid in cost savings and foster competitive advantage.

I’ll be hosting an upcoming webinar, Five Ways to Increase Supplier Diversity and Compliance, taking place on Wednesday April 7th, at 5pm GMT, 1pm ET. Supply Chain Digital welcomes a panel of expert speakers to discuss and help guide us on best practices.
