3:40 PM Panel: Supplier Diversity - Is It In Procurement’s DNA?

Supplier Diversity Programs came into existence is the US  President Richard Nixon signed Executive Order 11625 in 1972 and focused on African Americans. In the 40+ years since then, the concept has become more inclusive, incorporating more ethnic minorities, women, veterans, the LGBT and disabled communities and other small businesses in the USA and sometimes abroad. 

As a CPO or Head of Indirect, you’ve likely communicated the values of Supplier Diversity and how it is aligned with your overall corporate values (and have resources dedicated to the effort.).  But do you know if your Supplier Diversity program is fully aligned with your sourcing organization?  This panel will discuss the tips, tricks, and techniques necessary to incorporate Supplier Diversity into your team’s DNA.  Areas for discussion include:: 
•How to align SD’s goals with your Operational Master Plan? 
•Approaches to incorporate SD wins in team/individual evaluations
•Approaches to include diverse suppliers within overall supplier risk management programs.
