Supplier Diversity: The Missing Piece of Your DEI Strategy Organizations, courts, and law firms have brought Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (DEI) strategies to the forefront over the last few years with a goal of fostering an inclusive work environment for all. While boosting workplace diversity is important, focusing here alone ignores a critical piece of the DEI strategy – supplier diversity programs that promote an inclusive approach to procurement. After completing this program, participants will have a better understanding of what supplier diversity is and why it is important. They will gain an awareness of related policies, laws, and case law at the state and federal level, including the standard set forth in City of Richmond v. J. A. Croson Co., and they will gain knowledge to debunk the common myths the community of diverse businesses hear the most when trying to work with companies.
