Diversity & Inclusion


Procurement, like every other business function, needs to attract and retain the best talent to drive performance. Increasingly, Diversity & Inclusion is at the heart of this. 

 

Businesses not only have a responsibility to respect and value all forms of difference including race and ethnicity, culture and belief, gender and sexuality, age and social status and ability. There is also a huge business advantage to be had: diverse teams are more innovative, but also people want to be part of them and stay part of them.
Here you will find lots of resources to support your D&I strategies, with specific focus on procurement.
