This conference will turn on that engine again in helping the minority businesses with how to get funding, understand the new supply chain operations, and put their foot forward with confidence.
There is no better time for this conversation than now for Asian American businesses who are beginning to come out from their hardest hit economic and personal experiences in American history. For more about USPAACC’s work and mission please visit us at uspaacc.com.

SD Champions provides tools to nurture corporate, government, and large nonprofit supplier diversity programs, while also encouraging and supporting the certification and development of the small and diverse businesses that make these programs a reality.
The SD Champions program advanced by USPAACC represents a purposeful shift away from awards solely based on a corporation's ability to spend and moves toward a new emphasis that encourages transparency, innovation, inclusion, impact on the community, and integration in supplier diversity programs.
