Supplier Diversity Accelerator: Primer Workshop
May 9 @ 12:30 pm - 4:00 pm EDT
TOPIC: How To Integrate Supplier Diversity with ESG & DEI
Join us on May 9 for a half-day online workshop Supplier Diversity Accelerator: Backstage Primer designed to move your supplier diversity program to its next level through learning, experience sharing and open conversations.
There has been a lot of activity surrounding DEI (diversity, equity, and inclusion) and ESG (Environmental, Social, and Governance) in the past year. So much so, that supplier diversity professionals may feel they are competing for funding and attention at times in their organization. The truth is that DEI and ESG are incredible opportunities for supplier diversity professionals. In this workshop, Jamie Crump, lead consultant for the Accelerator program will take a deeper dive into why these initiatives are the best news supplier diversity has received in a long time and how to align the strategies for the best results for their company.
