THE BIG IDEA...

THE

FACTS...

The Global Supplier Diversity Conference (GSDC)  helps minority suppliers pursue, win and successfully maintain corporate contracts. The full-day conference is designed to increase the number of successful minority-owned, woman-owned and other disadvantaged small business suppliers. 

 

ADDRESSING SUPPLIER DIVERSITY 

While total revenue for all U.S. firms grew 65% between 1997 and 2008, from $18.6 trillion to $30.7 trillion, the portion of total revenue generated by minority firms only grew from 2.7% to 2.8% over the same period. Despite numbering more than 50% of all firms in the United States, minority and female businesses represent only 6.1% of total annual revenue. -Wharton Magazine

 

Attendees will understand how to research and prepare for supplier opportunities, increasing their chances of success by recognizing the right opportunities for their business model.

95% of top U.S Corporations have a supplier diversity spending goal. 

$39.3 Billion was spent with women owned businesses in top corporations in 2017.

80% of U.S Corporations mention supplier diversity in their annual reports.
