Founder & CEO of Diversity Accords; a national supplier diversity advisory service and network of 75,000+ diverse suppliers, Fortune 1000 companies, and public agencies who are committed to attaining diversity objectives by fulfilling contracts.
After starting our company - Diversity Accords - in 2008, it became evident that all supply chain environments are unique and in different stages with regard to supplier diversity. I have supported the supplier diversity needs of companies like Kaiser Permanente, Lexmark, Blue Cross Blue Shield, Hospira and others...all wanting to build a more effective and efficient supplier diversity capability. No matter where you are in your journey to build a quality supplier diversity platform, we know where to start and how to move forward. From building a program, to sourcing diverse suppliers, to creating a business case for diversity - we can help. We've recently been awarded a national contract with US Communities as the prime provider of supplier diversity services for their 55,000 Members...so as our client base grows, so will our expertise and knowledge. We would be honored to share all of it with you.
