For minority and women supplier diversity business entrepreneurs

What America can learn from one company’s progression toward supplier diversity.
When considering the direction of my career, and how I might help leaders progress, I chose the prevention route in branding and communication, which is how I got my start in supplier diversity. Rather than crisis management, which cleans up and restores brands, I created a concept called “Continuous Improvement in Communication”, which helps companies leverage their brand value while limiting their daily losses. After having launched several minority business brands, I became quite comfortable with some of the challenges minorities in business may face, especially in highly competitive industries with low minority business participation. My research helped me to see just how much supplier diversity and minority affairs go hand in hand, making it practically impossible to focus on helping diverse suppliers without learning the many diverse roads in which we’ve all traveled to get to the various seats at tables of opportunity.
