More information

At the beginning of this year, we conducted a survey to determine where organizations stand with regard to Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) in procurement policy. One of the outcomes was that a number of organizations are consciously thinking about the topic but are less able to translate it into procurement policy. And that is what we now want to provide concrete tools for. How can we concretely work on making their D&I an integral part of their procurement policy?
