Why Supplier Diversity is important infographic. Supplier Diversity is a proactive business program which encourages the use of women-owned businesses as suppliers within procurement chains. Supplier diversity programs recognize that utilizing products and services from previously under-used suppliers both helps to sustain and to progressively transform a company's supply chain. Companies owned by women entrepreneurs represent forty seven percent of all small and medium-sized enterprises and provide jobs for 1.7 million Canadians. There are over 821,000 women entrepreneurs in Canada who annually contribute more than eighteen billion dollars to the economy. Women-owned businesses are creating new jobs at four times the rate of the average firm and women are starting businesses at twice the rate of men. Despite all this, women-owned businesses are seriously under-represented in procurement contracts. Now is the time to access opportunities in a broad range of industries including oil and gas, mining, and other energy-related sectors. Visit www.supplierdiversitynl.com for more information.
