When companies harness the power of supplier diversity programs, they can have a transformative impact on their own businesses as well as underserved communities. By implementing supplier diversity initiatives, companies and organizations gain access to innovation from diverse networks of suppliers, reflect their values and commitments to social responsibility, and create positive community impacts through strengthened economic development. Here we explore why supplier diversity matters to Medtronic and how it can benefit both companies and communities alike.
At the end of the day, supplier diversity programs have far-reaching implications for both companies and communities. By engaging a diverse pool of suppliers, companies benefit from improved innovation, an equitable workplace environment and a strong statement about their corporate values. Meanwhile, members of underrepresented communities gain access to economic opportunities that enable them to create wealth and support local economies. In short, investing in supplier diversity is an investment in the future that will help build stronger businesses and greater mutual prosperity for all involved.
