Supplier Diversity: Making Your Supply Chain Deeply & Durably Good

It’s more important than ever that manufacturers collect the data they need to properly evaluate vendors and identify risks in the supply chain. A consistent, robust qualification process for a diverse set of suppliers can help manufacturers grow better.

The Growing Emphasis on Supplier Diversity

Environmental, social, and governance (ESG) principles — including diversity — are becoming increasingly important to investors, clients, and employees. As global supply chains become more complex, effective supplier qualification can be integral to a manufacturer’s success. Data collected during the supplier qualification process can help manufacturers build robust ESG programs that attract clients. In some cases, supplier diversity is a requirement to gain access to government contracts.

Risks of Inaction With Supplier Diversity

Without a supplier diversity program, manufacturers could miss out on lucrative government contracts that carry stringent requirements for diversity. They could also miss out on special procurement contracts reserved for manufacturers that have committed resources to encouraging supplier diversity. A lack of commitment to supplier diversity could also damage a company’s reputation.
