The Supplier Diversity Champions (“SD Champions”) program is now open and accepting applications from US-based corporations, government entities, and large nonprofits with at least 750 US-based employees to assess their supplier diversity program and compare their program with itself year-over-year to nurture true growth and development.
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.
SD Champions recognizes the unsung heroes of supplier diversity based on corporate, government or nonprofit initiatives that go beyond the ability to spend and focus on transparency, innovation, inclusion, impact, and integration of their programs into the community.
“Strengthening supplier diversity is good for our economy, good for small businesses, good for underserved communities, and good for the health and viability of our global supply chain. I encourage qualifying corporations, government entities, and large nonprofits to apply today and become SD Champions.” – USPAACC National President and CEO Susan Au Allen
