Supplier Diversity: Empty Words or Execution?

Almost every retailer has created diversity goals and promises. But fulfilling those pledges and commitments has proved to be extremely difficult. Where are all the retail-ready Minority Suppliers? How will they be able to compete with large manufacturers? There are a few things that need to happen to effectively execute supplier diversity initiatives. Discover what you can do differently to ensure you aren’t overpromising and underdelivering.

About Jessica Thomas

After 14 years of building relationships in multiple industries, I developed a passion for people and a desire to make a difference. In the retail industry, I learned about the challenges of sourcing retail-ready Minority Suppliers. Every retailer has created Supplier Diversity Goals and Initiatives but fulfilling those pledges and commitments has proved to be extremely difficult. It takes a ton of time and effort that no retailer has. I created CURATE 360 to fill the gap between Diverse Suppliers that want to get on the shelves and Retailers that support Supplier Diversity.
