2:10 PM Panel: Selecting Criteria For Supplier Diversity And Inclusion

Bringing diverse suppliers into your supply chain is a high priority – but what kind of diversity are you talking about, and how can you make sure it’s real?  Encouraging supplier diversity can both fulfill corporate and social goals while spurring entrepreneurship and strengthening the market.

•Clarify how you value diversity as based on ethnicity, gender, nationality, disability, career background, and other factors
•Pick suppliers that align with your values and belong to the most appropriate certifying bodies
•Build a culture that encourages the types of diversity that best match your organizational goals
