The Business Case for Diversity in a Social Responsibility Context

University of Wisconsin Banner Ad

Thursday, April 19, 2007

While the concept of diversity is not new, it has become more complex and reaches into all layers of the organization. Over time, diversity management in business has transitioned from an emphasis on "achieving the numbers" into an essential business strategy. Commitment to opportunities for a diverse supplier base and commitment to a diverse workforce are key components to attracting the best suppliers and employees while ensuring business success. Discussion topics will include building goals and measurements across the organization, how supply managers play a key role in encouraging supplier commitment to diversity programs, and what a model program might look like.
