INSIGHTS FROM THE ECOSYSTEM – HOSTED BY COUPA

 

The Evolution of Supplier Diversity & Inclusion: From tactical, mandate-driven compliance to strategic business imperative

Inclusive Procurement Programs are increasingly becoming a key component of global corporate social responsibility (CSR) initiatives at the very top of corporate agendas. The societal, economic and commercial benefits have moved such programs from “tick the box” initiatives to strategic business imperatives. An inclusive procurement strategy can deliver significant value through increased innovation, competitive edge , higher quality and lower costs. So why is it that many companies are still unable to meet their goals or realise the full value of a more inclusive supply chain? We will explore:

  • How recent events have raised the level of consciousness on this topic
  • The need for enterprise-wide spend visibility
  • The importance of integrating supplier diversity & inclusion functions within procurement
  • The importance of one-source-of-truth for supplier data, including diversity credentials
