Virtually All Diversity Suppliers Meet or Exceed Expectations
According to a new Hackett Group Inc. report, 76 percent of all diverse suppliers meet buyers' expectations and another 23 percent exceed them. Additionally, the buyers see improved quality and often extract other benefits, including increased market share and access to new revenue opportunities. Says, Elizabeth A. Vazquez, CEO and Co-Founder of WEConnect International:
Omikal (formerly DiversityBusiness.com) announced Wednesday their Omni50 list of U.S. corporations who are "awarding the most business to the growing, culturally diverse vendor/supplier marketplace." Among those honored were WEConnect International global corporate members Apple, IBM, Microsoft, Verizon, and Walmart. Europe local member Coca-Cola also made the list.
During a recent edition of Let’s Talk Small Business Radio, Stacey Key, President / CEO of the Georgia Minority Supplier Development Council talked with Nedra Dickson, Global Supplier Inclusion & Sustainability Lead from WEConnect International member corporation Accenture.
Nedra, who will be speaking at the WEConnect International Symposium in March, discussed Accenture’s commitment to mentoring small businesses around the world.
