Taking Your Supplier Diversity Program to the Next Level

At this year’s World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, David Solomon, the CEO of Goldman Sachs, announced that beginning July 1, the firm will not take any company public that does not have at least one “diverse” board member. According to research by McKinsey & Company, companies in the topquartile for gender diversity outperform their competitors by 21%, and those in the top quartile for ethnic diversity outperform by 33%.

This focus on diversity is growing in business enterprises of all kinds, and it extends to the supply chain. Many companies have had supplier diversity programs in place for years, but boosting the scope and performance of those programs is now more important than ever.

On April 2, 2020, Lamont Robinson, a nationally recognized leader in the supplier diversity field, and a stellar panel of procurement and business executives will discuss the key requirements for building a high-performing supplier diversity program. In this fast-paced discussion, you will learn:

  • Why partnering with diverse suppliers is becoming more important

  • How to find diverse suppliers

  • How to ensure the success of a supplier diversity program

  • How to measure the performance of a supplier diversity program

  • How supplier diversity programs will change over the next few years

If you’re a procurement or marketing procurement professional, this program is for you.
