Sustained Commitment to Diverse Supplier Inclusion: The Foundation for Supplier Diversity Growth

This program proposes the creation of a central Supplier Diversity and Inclusion tool containing certified diverse suppliers, searchable and filterable by diversity type, service/goods, ethnicity and other criteria required by the purchasing community. The tool would be designed with the ability to easily update data in order to keep the information current and is intended to increase utilization of diverse vendors across Harvard.
