Celebrating Supplier Diversity – A Social and Economic Imperative

By Anthea Pennant

Teaching and Innovation

The goal of this workshop is to highlight WHY supplier diversity is vital to the health and sustainability of the US economy. The attendees will have a better understanding of how supplier diversity works in procurement, and about the important role, they can play to help in transforming student lives by enriching our diverse community. By 2044, more than half of all Americans will belong to a minority group.  Today, in many communities like Broward County minorities are already a functioning majority. Improving access to diverse businesses is more than a social issue, it is an economic imperative. As College professionals, we need to become more intentional about promoting supplier diversity as a valuable tool in the revenue-generating tool-kit for all community stakeholders, especially our students.
