Event description

Description

Ahead of the WEConnect International Europe Conference which is taking place on the 8th and 9th November, and in conjunction with Intel and Dell, we are hosting a supplier diversity forum for multi-national corporations focussed on the topic of supplier diversity and inclusive supply chains.

The event is open to any multi-national corporation that is interested in understanding how they can increase the diversity in their supply base. Unfortunately, this event is not open to SMEs - if you are from an SME, please consider registering to attend our annual Europe conference which is taking place on the 8th and 9th November in the same location: https://weconnecteurope.org/event/weconnect-international-europe-conference-2018

We’ll hear from a number of speakers including Emma Jones - Small Business Representative for the Crown who is working with the government towards meeting the target of £1 in every £3 being spent with small businesses by 2020. We’ll also hear from Intel who are on track to achieve $1B in annual spending with certified-diverse owned suppliers by 2020 - they will share an insight into their global supplier diversity programme. There will also be facilitated discussions focussed on sharing best practices for supplier diversity and the practical actions and steps corporations can take to increase opportunities for diverse suppliers in the corporate supply chain. A more detailed agenda will be made available in the coming weeks.

This will be an excellent opportunity to meet, connect and share experiences with others corporations in the UK and Europe who are developing successful supplier diversity programmes in this region. The event will also lead nicely into the WEConnect International Europe Conference that is taking place over the following two days in the same location – participants in this forum will be encouraged to join the conference too.

This event is kindly being supported and hosted by Intel Corporation and Dell Corporation.
