Session Length: 60 Min


This session will feature a video with legacy practitioners sharing the rich history of supplier diversity programming in the U.S., and the impact it has had on the global economy, business development and opportunity, and local communities.

There will be a panel discussing the history visualized in the video and providing opportunity for Q&A and discussion.

Together, we will set the momentum for a productive conference focused on the energy of our success as a business and economic development strategy, while looking toward continued progress and the future.
