Come join us for an interesting and informative morning of presentations by 2 Panels of speakers. Panel 1, you will hear from 3 major corporation's Supplier Diversity Leaders and one of their certified suppliers. The SDLs will discuss the on-boarding process and requirements of all suppliers to become qualified to contract with them. The 3 suppliers will discuss their experiences before and after they became a qualified supplier. Panel 2, you will hear from representatives from WPEO-WBENC & GNEMSDC who provide certifications for Diversity Suppliers. They will discuss their program and what services and value they provide small businesses to expand contract opportunities with commercial as well as government procurement offices.

Who should attend? If you are in the purchasing department of a commercial company or are a prime or sub tier contractor to the federal government, responsible for supplier selection and contracting, you will want to hear how your peers select suppliers. If you are a small business or a certified diversity supplier, and want to hear what it takes to succeed in getting in door and staying in the room with key purchasing representatives, this workshop is for you. If you are a supplier who is not certified and want to grow your business with the above, come listen to certification organizations.
