supplier diversity excellence globally
The best way to predict the future is to create it. ~ Peter Drucker
Our belief is that BDR corporations can spark innovation by sharing their journey through difficult times. Small, agile businesses can have their moment and seize the opportunity to prepare for the "new normal" with a solution to a current challenge shared in one of the corporate discussions. BDR is honored to facilitate the transformation of corporations, small businesses and diverse owned corporations.
OUR MISSION & OVERVIEW
"To drive supplier diversity excellence through best practice sharing and thought leadership."
The Billion Dollar Roundtable was created in 2001 to recognize and celebrate corporations that achieved spending of at least $1 billion with minority and woman-owned suppliers. The BDR promotes and shares best practices in supply chain diversity excellence through the production of white papers. In discussions, the members review common issues, opportunities and strategies.The BDR encourages corporate entities to continue growing their supplier diversity programs by increasing commitment and spending levels each year. The BDR inducts new members bi-annually.
