 SIMULTANEOUS INTERPRETATION WILL  BE PROVIDED

The first Latin America Supplier Diversity and Inclusion Conference is an unprecedented event in the region, designed for local and global corporations operating in Latin American and the Caribbean markets. 

The Conference will bring together expert practitioners to share tools and resources to successfully launch and grow a supplier diversity and inclusion journey.

There is a strong need for training local corporate advocates on supplier diversity and inclusion. More awareness is needed on the business case of buying from women, the available tools and resources, action plan designing and implementation, as well as tracking and measurement reporting.

WEConnect International's mission is to help women-owned businesses succeed in global value chains. This event will host a conference designed for women-owned enterprises poised for growth. Workshops, panel discussions, matchmaking and networking opportunities are all designed to provide more information and training on how to grow a business and identify market opportunities.
