Reimagining the Supplier Inclusion Program
October 7, 2019
To better reflect its mission to pursue a more inclusive procurement model, Procurement Services is relaunching Drexel's Supplier Diversity program with a new name: the Supplier Inclusion Program. The word "inclusion" more accurately represents the program's goal to give all types of suppliers the opportunity to interact with Drexel, whether it be by directly engaging in a transactional business relationship or by reaching out to the University for guidance, development and partnership. This refocused terminology also better defines how Procurement Services aims to collaborate with our suppliers, and places emphasis on how important it is to support smaller, local and diverse businesses. Communities are better served when we promote inclusion through positive messaging and engagement.
