Why join Supply Nation?
Supplier diversity has significant and measurable long-term business benefits – the data clearly indicates that diverse supply chains are more sustainable, flexible and innovative.
But more importantly, supplier diversity is designed to harness planned and budgeted procurement spend and redirect it to traditionally under-represented businesses where it can create greater social good.
As a not-for-profit, you understand the importance of leveraging dollars to ensure the greatest possible benefit from the least possible spend – so if you can spend the same amount and create up to four times the social return, that seems like a smart investment.
What is supplier diversity?
Supplier diversity is a global movement designed to harness planned and budgeted procurement spend and redirect it to traditionally under-represented businesses where it can create greater social good and give businesses a strong competitive advantage. Supplier diversity offers under-represented businesses the same opportunities to compete for business as other qualified suppliers and drives a range of business benefits, including sustainability, flexibility, innovation and value. A proactive approach is required to change entrenched organisational processes: historical practices and commercial habits tend to limit opportunities for new suppliers.
