Supplier diversity is an important element of the strategic and supply chain management plans of most major corporations. Yet, while they have invested heavily in information systems and technology platforms over the years, very little has changed in how these companies manage and maintain their supplier diversity networks. The development of a modern flexible and cloud-based Supplier Diversity Verification Service offering and a Supplier Diversity Management Portal is an opportunity to add meaningful and measurable value to major corporations.
The working group will design, develop and deliver cloud-based supplier verification services that scale easily to serve the needs of suppliers, major corporations, and suppliers. Whether a company has a need to verify the diversity status of existing suppliers within their vendor management systems or to vet new supplier applications, the Supplier Diversity Verification Service will confirm a supplier’s diversity status using public and proprietary data sources; and identify any discrepancies or compliance issues. Throughout the process, companies will be able to review overall screening program status and drill into individual suppliers to review the supplier reported, third-party data and verification findings. The Supplier Diversity Management Portal will leverage a unique technology platform, high-quality data verification processes and supplier program management services to improve program results, drive adoption and achieve corporate sourcing objectives. It will be built on a technology platform that increases the efficiency of collecting, monitoring and reporting on supplier diversity information.
Participants can expect to benefit from a detailed work plan and implementation tool kit that documents everything needed to effectively execute a defined solution. It outlines the scope of work, resource requirements, level-of-effort estimates, and implementation timeline.
Working group participants consistently rate senior-level interactions and purpose-driven discussions as one of the top reasons for participation. Therefore, all briefing registrants must be senior level management executives (i.e., CIOs, CTOs, COOs, CSOs, CISOs, CMIOs, SVPs, VPs, Directors, etc.) or their equivalent. You should be involved in the management, implementation, development, acquisition, recommendation, or evaluation of business processes or systems relevant to this briefing.

Innovation Working Groups (IWGs) are invitation-only working groups that generally consist of 3-5 enterprise participants. As “member-driven” collaborations, IWGs support a confidential and collaborative environment for connecting innovative solution providers with major enterprises interested in exploring, validating and acquiring high-value solutions. ironSAGE expert facilitators guide participants in establishing requirements for enterprise pilots and the full-scale adoption of solutions aimed at solving defined technical, business, market or industry challenges.
