Moving Forward: Supplier Diversity and the Road to Recovery
With 2020 behind us, we are looking forward to continuing expanding supplier diversity and supporting underrepresented entrepreneurs across Canada.
The Supplier Diversity Alliance Canada is proud to invite you to the 2021 Virtual Supplier Diversity Summit, taking January 26 & 27 via PheedLoop.
This year’s summit is generously supported by Kellogg’s and will focus on the continuing the path forward for diverse suppliers, entrepreneurs, and companies of all sizes who see the benefits of supplier diversity
As always, one of the cornerstones of this year’s Virtual Supplier Diversity Summit will be corporate-certified supplier roundtables, presented this year in a virtual format. This is your chance to connect your business directly with representatives from leading corporations who see the incredible value in working with diverse suppliers.
We hope to see you there!
