Writing the Supplier Diversity Playbook

As organisations continue to roll out initiatives to strengthen their abilities to support diversity and inclusion for their people; can the same be said for diversity within their supply chains?  Despite recognising its importance, some organisations are still grappling with effectively integrating diversity into their sourcing and procurement processes.
Join us as we explore what our 'Playbook' should include:

  • Identifying Barriers: Understanding the Obstacles to Supplier Diversity
  • Unlocking Opportunities: Strategies to Source from Diverse Suppliers
  • Inclusivity in Action: Showcasing Success Stories and Best Practices
  • Collaborative Solutions: Strengthening Relationships with Diverse Suppliers

We are delighted to co-host this session with Rina Abbott-Jard, Procurement Leader at Suncorp, and Chair for the First Nations Employee Reference Group. Rina is a sustainability strategist, change manager, thought-leader and intrapreneur for all things ESG (Environment, Social and Governance) in the Supply Chain.

Rina will be hosting the breakfast with Michael Woodley (ISG Partner & Regional Manager QLD) along with a group of peers for an interactive and informative Community of Practice breakfast meeting.

About ISG's Community of Practice Event Series

ISG established the Community of Practice several years ago with a belief in the value of fostering community, learning and networking amongst our clients. With vendor management at the core of the community, we aim to create a space for the open sharing of ideas.

We have strong guiding principles: no selling, no positioning of any products or services from anyone (including ourselves), and no providers. ISG acts as a thought leader in this space, and it has created very rewarding results for us and our community members over the years.
