Diversity, Equity and Inclusion Strategies Designed to Connect Supply Chain Professionals with Diverse Suppliers

Research demonstrates that supplier diversity initiatives can result in a 133% return on investment for organizations. Yet Conductiv’s database shows that healthcare providers spend an average of only 1.35% of their total indirect spend with diverse suppliers. That’s why we created Lumen.

Lumen, Conductiv’s Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion (D.E.I.) initiative, aims to help organizations bridge the gap and build sustainable diversity programs. ​

Educate your team on the importance of diversity.​​

In order for Supply Chain Teams to fully take on supplier diversity, they must be empowered to educate their own stakeholders on the importance of implementing a D.E.I. initiative.​

Conductiv’s solution places education at the front and center, so that you can align stakeholders. Before you take on the ‘how’, you first must understand the ‘why’ and have the expert support on how to communicate the importance and gain buy-in.​

Track your progress to success through analytics.​​

The complicated process and manual tracking efforts that Supply Chain experts deal with on an every day basis prevent them from building sustainable diversity programs.​​

Conductiv's solution utilizes advanced analytics to enable organizations to track their progress, and identify opportunities to adjust their contracting strategy to meet their diversity goals and initiatives. ​
