The Council for Supplier Diversity, established in 1999, is a nonprofit organization whose objective is to bring corporations and diverse business enterprises (DBEs) together for the economic benefit of both. The Council for Supplier Diversity represents the regional corporate outreach to DBEs in the southern California. It is our purpose to facilitate business opportunities and market share growth for diverse business enterprises through the interaction of corporate members and qualified suppliers.
What's New At Council!
September 10 -13 is Supplier Diversity Achievement Week in San Diego. During this week the Council will hold its annual Business Opportunity Conference (BOC). This week features daily seminars where minority and diverse businesses will learn about strategic opportunities to build, grow and develop their companies. Member corporations will share supplier diversity best practices for achieving strategic value with DBE suppliers. During the BOC Trade Show, certified DBEs will display their products and services while our members' sourcing, procurement and diversity executives visit DBE booths looking for new supplier opportunities.
The week starts with the Council's third annual golf tournament at San Diego's top rated golf course, Maderas Country Club. Following the tournament is a sunset cruise reception where all attendees for the conference can meet, connect and expand their key business relationships. Last year's cruise attendees reported it to be one of the best opportunities to cultivate meaningful business relationships. Click here for more information on this event.
