“Diversity: the art of thinking
— Malcolm Forbes
Supply, meet Demand.
Managers across the nation are under increasing pressure to meet diversity goals in state contracting. New York State, for example recently increased its state contracting utilization goal for minority-and-women-owned business enterprises (MWBE) to 30 percent – the highest such target in the nation for any state government.
Supplier Diversity, Public Procurement and Not For Profit Managers are not only tasked with identifying qualified suppliers within the buyer diversity chain, but pairing them with opportunities that match their capabilities. The process of sourcing certified-capable firms is daunting, and remains a critical challenge throughout the procurement process.
Established in 2015, Diversify NY, LLC, is a regionally based, multidisciplinary consulting firm whose primary consultative practice involves the development, training, and certification of Minority and Woman owned Business Enterprises as a WBE, MBE, DBE, or 8(a) or SBE.
