Learning About Supplier Diversity
April 1 @ 9:00 am - 10:00 am
Supplier diversity opens doors for Canadian businesses who have diverse ownership, to supply chains across Canada. Diverse business owners experience barriers to success simply due to their diversity, and that has contributed to their ability to constantly innovate, be nimble, to adapt, trouble shoot and provide valuable business solutions. Many corporations in Canada are taking advantage of the opportunity to work with suppliers who have these skills. Supply councils are in place to source and certify diverse businesses and then connect them through varying methods to corporations and governments who are specifically looking to add them to their supply chain.
Canada’s four Supply Councils link corporate Canada with women owned businesses, LGBTQ+ owned businesses, indigenous and visible minority business owners, disabled entrepreneurs and Veterans in Canada who are business owners.
Canada’s Supply Diversity Councils will all be on hand to provide StrikeUP attendees with information on how to best advance your organizations goals through supplier diversity.
The councils participating in the event include:
- Canadian Aboriginal and Minority Supplier Council (CAMSC)
- Canadian Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (CGLCC)
- Inclusive Workplace and Supply Council of Canada (IWSCC)
- Women Business Enterprises Canada Council (WBE Canada)
