I hope that you have enjoyed the article “7 Supplier Diversity Challenges, Part I.”
As the title implies, there is a second part to this. That article is tentatively slated for the April 3 edition of PurchTips.
There are so many little things that need to be considered when putting a program in place to successfully find, utilize, report spend with, and sustain diverse suppliers. Many of those things aren’t discovered until after a supplier diversity program is put in place. Hopefully exposing these challenges will accelerate the time-to-perfection for purchasing departments starting a supplier diversity program.
