Your dedication to diversity is a competitive advantage and will get you noticed by companies seeking minority, women or diverse suppliers. Deloitte Insights reported in 2017 that diversity is now a CEO-level issue, and diversity as a priority of CEOs has risen from 32% since 2014. Deloitte further reports that 69% of CEOs agree diversity and inclusion are important. Those CEOS are directing buyers, and buyers are looking for your MBE.
ConnXus, a certified MBE, has worked with SAP Ariba to develop technology that drives inclusive and sustainable suppliers to current requests for quotes (RFQ), requests for proposals (RFP) and requests for information (RFI) from Fortune 2000 companies. Dedication to supplier diversity and minority business enterprises (MBEs) is infused into the ConnXus Vendor Portal technology. Registered suppliers will have their diversity certification displayed with their profile, and buyers have the capability to filter out non-diverse suppliers and filter in diversity classifications specific to their needs.
