Webinar: Supplier Diversity and Inclusion in Africa

Did you know that 40% of businesses were women-owned in 2020, yet our estimates suggest they have access to less than 1% of large buyer spend? Supplier diversity and inclusion (SD&I) efforts can fast track integration of diverse suppliers into corporate value chains, support their growth, and enable multinational firms and organizations to benefit from the innovation and competition that comes with this diversity, and especially women-owned businesses.

This virtual panel presents best practices to begin and develop sustainable SD&I efforts in Africa. The session is designed for representatives from corporations and buying organizations who are interested in finding out more about supplier diversity and inclusion efforts in Africa, especially on the business case of buying from women-owned businesses.

We encourage representatives from WEConnect International member companies and organizations, their Tier 1 suppliers, and other companies to attend.  Registrants will also receive a recording after the event.
