This year's economic, cultural, and health environment has elevated the industry's focus on supplier diversity initiatives. As an example, over 50% of the top 25 investor-owned utilities in the US referenced the topic in their Q2 earnings call, vs. just 20% in Q2 of last year. However, data and resource challenges can often hinder progress to stated diversity program goals.
Our team recently discussed the topic in a roundtable of utility leaders at the WEI Procurement Management Program. To request a debrief of the discussions, please fill out the form to the right, or don't hesitate to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
