DiversityPlus Magazine’s Top 25 Women in Power Impacting Diversity – Elevate Supplier Diversity to Strategic Level
In 2020, the Top 25 Women once again elevated supplier diversity by working to make it the responsibility of everyone in their entire organization and not just sourcing and procurement or category managers. They strive to make everyone aware and knowledgeable of the importance of diverse suppliers to organizational innovation and long-term strategic success.
It took years of relentless communication, but one thing that has become very obvious is the champions of supplier diversity have been successful in garnering the support of senior leaders. The support of the CEO and executive leaders is the backbone of their success. With that support, the Women in Power gained the ability to reach out across their respective organizations to work with decision-makers at all levels in advancing supplier diversity. They work across geographies and across functions, making their approach ideal for a time when organizations are flattening and people network instead of working in siloes, writes DiversityPlus on their website.
