What is Supplier Diversity and Why is it important?

Supplier Diversity is a business strategy that ensures a diverse supplier base in the procurement of goods and services for any business or organization. It emphasizes the creation of a diverse supply chain that works to secure the inclusion of diverse groups in the procurement plans for government, not-for-profit, and private industry.

In other words, supplier diversity refers to a business supply chain that incorporates businesses owned by diverse individuals or groups.
