Recognizing the unsung heroes of supplier diversity

The Supplier Diversity Champions program is a groundbreaking initiative that recognizes inclusion, impact, and integration of supplier diversity programs within organizations. Organizations based in the U.S. with at least 750 U.S.-based employees are eligible. All applicants will receive a report with their Supplier Diversity Champions score. The top-scoring organizations will receive an award of distinction and recognition at USPAACC’s CelebrASIAN Business + Procurement Conference on May 29-31, 2024, in Alpharetta (Metro Atlanta), GA.

What is the Supplier Diversity Champions program?

An application for any US-based corporation or government to assess their supplier diversity program and compare their program with itself year over year to nurture true growth and development.

What sets it apart?

An award program to recognize the unsung heroes of supplier diversity based on corporate or government initiatives that go beyond a corporation or government’s ability to spend and focus instead on inclusion, impact, and integration of their programs into the community.

Powered by USPAACC

A network for corporate and government supplier diversity representatives to access valuable development resources and improve their supplier diversity programs while simultaneously strengthening the economy and our global supply chain.

Our program provides tools to nurture corporate and government supplier diversity programs while also encouraging and supporting the certification and development of the small businesses that make these programs a reality.

HOW WE MEASURE SUCCESS

Innovation

We’re looking for companies or governments that are thinking outside the box to target diverse business owners.

Inclusion

How is your company or government targeting diverse business owners who represent your company’s or government's core values?

Impact

In what ways is your company or government seeking to make a positive impact on diverse communities?

Integration

How is your company or government working to deliver its product/service value to diverse communities in the United States?

Why this matters?

Powered by the US Pan Asian American Chamber of Commerce Education Foundation (USPAACC), this growth-based initiative has been in development for over a year.

President Biden’s Executive Order 13985 instructs all federal agencies to increase their purchasing from diverse businesses from 5% to 15% in the next five years.
