Delaware State Chamber of Commerce: Breaking Down Barriers

Date & Time:
Tuesday, September 21, 2021
4:00 pm

Chase Center on the Riverfront
815 Justison St
Wilmington, DE

Many companies in Delaware and beyond are actively seeking certified diverse businesses to integrate into their supply chains. These partnerships are advantageous to all involved. Supplier diversity generates economic opportunity for disadvantaged communities and promotes healthy competition, which can improve product quality and drive down costs.

But forming a relationship with a diverse supplier can be easier said than done. How do you find diverse businesses and initiate partnerships? Does your company qualify for certification? How does one go about the process?

Join us for a panel discussion that will identify the barriers from both sides of the RFP process. Our panelists will offer insights on partnering with diverse suppliers and the challenges faced in building a successful supplier diversity program, when and how a certification can help a business, and what hurdles others have faced leveraging that certification.
