       "Supplier Diversity"
In the last decade Corporate America has become a distinguishably diversified entity as minority and women owned business enterprises (MWBEs) have more than tripled, with revenues soaring over 100% and diversified consumers quickly approaching $ 1.4 trillion in purchasing power. Demographic trends clearly link financial and market longevity to a company's ability to adapt to a diversified consumer population. Therefore, businesses must retain a supplier pool that mirrors the diversity of their consumer base, in order to maintain a competitive edge.

 

Diversity is "... taking advantage of the growing variety of skill sets, experiences, and knowledge of our customers, employees and suppliers in order to maximize the productivity of our organizations. "

More specifically, Supplier Diversity describes the planned effort by major corporations and government entities to promote and facilitate procurement of goods and services. That effort requires a company to apply a systematic approach in tailoring its operations to make it successful. We help companies reexamine, redefine and restructure many aspects of their institutions and the way they do business, in order to be a competitive force for the future.
