Supplier Diversity Accelerator Workshop: Top 3 Chats to Have in 2024

February 7 @ 12:30 pm - 4:00 pm EST

Supplier Diversity Accelerator Workshop: Top 3 Chats

As we settle into 2024, there are a few discussions that you should have and should be ready to have in Q1 and Q2. Join Jamie to find out what the top three topics are for the first half of 2024 that you should be talking to internal stakeholders about. Then stick around for some Q&A time to ask questions and get input on what is top of mind in your company this year.

Supplier Diversity Accelerator Workshops are designed as an in-depth training resource for your team as part of the Supplier Diversity Accelerator program. Each workshop will dive into specific topics related to Supplier Diversity, assisting in your organization’s SD program and strategy.  The training portion of these workshops is recorded for your reference. Q&A is not recorded.
