Event description

Description

EQUALITY = INNOVATION
How more inclusive supply chains drive innovation and accelerate diverse business growth

Date: Tuesday 24th September 2019
Timings: 8.30am to 4.30pm followed by networking
Location: Accenture, Campus Kronberg 1, Frankfurt, Germany

The day is split into two: the morning session will only be for representatives from corporate member companies or companies who are interested in finding out more about supplier diversity programmes in Germany and the afternoon session will also include representatives from women-owned businesses in Germany.

At the morning session, hosted by Accenture’s CPO Kai Nowosel, we will have a mix of corporate representatives with mature programmes and those who are still new to the concept. We are aiming for a discussion where we can share best practices but also focus on challenges and opportunities for building supplier diversity programmes in the German market and beyond.

The discussion will be led by WEConnect International and its local partner VdU. The session will be conducted in English.

From 12pm, we will be joined by a group of women-owned businesses from Germany for an informal networking lunch which will lead into the afternoon session.

During the afternoon you will have the chance to hear short pitches from the women-owned businesses (these pitches will be delivered in a mix of German and English) and there will be the opportunity to participate in a Q&A panel session as well as roundtable discussions. The event will close at 4.30pm followed by optional networking and an informal drinks reception.

Please feel free to share these details and invitation with procurement peers in other organisations as well as with tier 1 and prime suppliers.
