Improve Your Supplier Diversity Program

registerToday’s Supplier Diversity Program Managers and Small Business Liaison Officers face many challenges while implementing and sustaining supplier diversity programs (e.g. interpreting Federal Acquisition Regulations, understanding Subcontracting Requirements, applying Federal Preference Programs, Subcontracting Reporting System Process and Requirements, etc.).

The Supplier Diversity Workshop will provide information and tools necessary for supplier diversity managers and small business liaison officers like you to strengthen their supplier diversity knowledge and to apply this knowledge in improving their supplier diversity program.

In addition, the friendly and educational format provides an excellent opportunity to build a network with other supplier diversity professionals.
