The 2013 NMSDC professional development seminars are designed to provide sourcing and supplier diversity professionals access to the most current and effective concepts in supplier diversity process management.
Key stakeholders are embracing innovation, sustainability and value. These areas of focus require sourcing and supplier diversity professionals to realign the priorities of the supplier diversity initiative. It is no longer acceptable to just have a database of MBEs, but those MBEs must have the ability to perform on major contracts and deliver value to the organization. Sustainability has become a major component of corporate social responsibility and many supplier diversity initiatives are being tasked with integrating sustainability into the overall process.
This year’s theme, "Minority Supplier Development: Collaborative Strategies" focuses on best practices and lessons learned in cultivating scalable MBEs. We will also discuss the burgeoning issue of integrating sustainability and supplier diversity.
This seminar is designed to provide owners of new supplier diversity initiatives with the key tools and strategies required to implement a robust process in their organization. This session will also present stakeholders of mature programs with fresh approaches to advancing minority supplier development within their organizations and throughout the global marketplace.
This interactive one-and-a-half-day seminar is designed to maximize participant interaction and provide insights on taking your initiative to the next level. Regardless of your level of experience, if supplier diversity is important to your company or to your major customers, you cannot afford to miss this opportunity. Come and see why Ralph G. Moore is recognized as the leading practitioner in supplier diversity and why RGMA has been the primary training resource for NMSDC for the past twenty years.
