The future of the economy is looking to be more diverse each year, with more startups actively pursuing diversity in their cultures as a way to ensure long-term growth. While the industry has made considerable strides in recent years, we can further ramp up supplier diversity through innovation. How can various companies innovate their supplier diversity programs? What role do mergers and acquisitions play in supplier inclusion?
In this episode, we describe how the economy can rely on innovation to improve the country’s overall supplier diversity status. We explain major milestones in supplier diversity, especially regarding budget. We discuss the role supplier diversity plays in mergers and acquisitions. We share the complexities of passing on the supplier diversity mantle to future generations. We also outline why virtual events just don’t work, especially when networking.
