A handful of socially conscious major businesses have long played a role in addressing racial injustice through supplier diversity programs that promote an inclusive approach to procurement. An inclusive procurement strategy widens the pool of potential suppliers and promotes competition in the supply base, which can improve product quality and drive down costs. And by providing more sourcing options, inclusiveness can make supply chains more resilient and agile — an increasingly important advantage in these uncertain times.

  • What is supplier diversity?
