Take your business to the next level by accessing new opportunities through Supplier Diversity. So….what is Supplier Diversity? In Canada, a business can qualify as a diverse supplier if they are 51% owned, operated, and controlled by one or more of the following:
- LGBT (Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual or Transgender)
Some of the reasons corporations engage in supplier diversity are:
- to increase their market share in a growing multicultural population.
- to increase the wealth of groups which are typically underrepresented, thereby increasing the corporation’s customer base.
- it aligns with their Corporate Social Responsibility practices and corporate values.
