SOCIO-ECONOMIC INCLUSION AND IMPACT SINCE 2010
“There needs to be a fundamental shift in supplier diversity programs that will now have companies implementing programs that will monitor economic inclusion and its overall impact to the company as well as to the local economies.”
– Florence Amate, Laisar – President / CEO
SUPPLIER DIVERSITY & ROI
Many organizations either view their supplier diversity programs as part of their corporate social responsibility program or as a check the box strategy to meet a regulatory requirement. Companies that go beyond a “check the box” policy can benefit from previously unforeseen returns on their investment.
Implementing Supplier Diversity
There needs to be a fundamental shift in supplier diversity programs that will now have companies implementing programs that will monitor economic inclusion and its overall impact on the company as well as on the local economies. A data-driven supplier diversity program is a good business strategy that offers additional value to the company and its local communities.
Managing Supplier Diversity
Supplier Diversity starts at the top with leadership. Once the CEO supports Supplier Diversity, we craft recommendations for how best to manage the supplier diversity program. We consider culture, communication, and more to deliver the optimal way to manage supplier diversity.
Measuring Inclusion & Impact
Our reporting management software measures the economic and social impact of program spend through the collection of demographic and spend data. We help organizations set goals and develop strategies to improve their performance over time.
“Diversity helps businesses and communities thrive. It’s that simple. When there are more options, more voices and more ideas, there are more opportunities for business excellence.”
—Darlene Fuller, Senior Director of Supplier Diversity, Sodexo
