Procurement Supplier Diversity Forum

March 15, 2018

Tues 10th April, 9am - 10.30am

225 George St, Sydney

 

Put your Money where your Strategy is: Inclusive Procurement and Supplier Diversity

 

Join us for an interactive panel discussion, featuring leading Australian organisations discussing diversity and inclusion along the supply chain, and hear examples of organisations who are working to align diversity, corporate responsibility, sustainability and procurement agendas.

 

We will be joined by guest speakers:

  • Erandi Samarakoon - Indigenous Supplier Diversity Manager at LendLease

  • George Mifsud - Director at Indigenous Defence Consortium

  • Glenn Johnston - Director of Procurement Transport at NSW Trains & Board member, Supply Nation

  • Olivia Tyler - Director Sustainable Business Services, Commercial Services at Westpac

Beginning with an address from each speaker, we will move to a discussion amongst the panel and open up to the audience for questions and input. Key themes we will cover include:

  • What are ethical and inclusive sourcing practices?

  • What are different types of direct vs indirect inclusive sourcing practices?

  • What are the practical challenges when engaging in Supplier Diversity? 

  • What are the steps/processes each of you take to build capability in suppliers when they're unsuccessful, or not quite there yet?

  • How can organisations address systemic and/or unconscious bias when it comes to sourcing events?

  • How can organisations use their influence to drive inclusion within their supplier base?

  • How can leaders outside the supply chain, such as D&I and HR leaders help to drive inclusive procurement?  

We encourage you to bring along a colleague from your organisation from Procurement/Supply Chain, and look forward to seeing you there.

 

Please advise if you have any special dietary or accessibility requirements.
