Diversifying Your Success with Heather Cox

Ask Heather: I just don't understand what supplier diversity means:

A.  Supplier Diversity is a business program that encourages the use of: minority-owned, women owned, veteran owned, LGBT-owned , service disabled veteran owned, historically underutilized business and any group classified as diverse.

Supplier Diversity is not a guarantee of business, rather, it is a commitment towards ensuring that Diverse Suppliers have fair and continuous opportunities to win  businesses in the same ways that their larger and more widely known counter parts do.

Heather Cox is Co-founder and COO of Certify My Company, a diversity consultancy. Certify My Company was born with the goal of inspiring and helping diverse businesses grow while having more fun and time doing it. 

Certify My Company provides help to business owners by getting their qualified businesses nationally certified, linking them with large corporations and each other to increase revenue, connecting them to events and sharing expert knowledge and motivation. 

Additionally, Certify My Company is the comprehensive resource for Corporate Diversity Managers to grow and reach their diversity goals. Heather and her team are in a unique position offering the opportunity to liaise between the corporations and their diversity vendors.
