5 Questions CPOs ask about supplier diversity

Updated: Jun 18

Earlier this year we released our Blueprint on Supplier Diversity, a comprehensive guide to delivering Inclusive Procurement. But what are the 5 most commonly asked questions?

In this consolidated 2 page guide we share 5 commonly asked questions and answers that most CPOs, and Heads of Procurement ask me as they build out their inclusive procurement programmes. 

  • What is the point of supplier diversity? I see everyone as equal.

  • Certification or Self-attestation. If we go the certification route do we prove someone is LGBTQ+?

  • We probably have Diverse Suppliers already in our supply chain. How can we find out which are?

  • How do we get buyers and category managers to adopt social value and our inclusive procurement initiative?

  • What will be the operational impact/cost to my business that we need to prepare for?

About Us

"Finding Diverse Suppliers is time-consuming as the process today involves researching against multiple databases."

Founded in 2019, Kaleida International is a B2B marketplace for Tenders connecting Buyers to Suppliers, and Diverse Suppliers. With a focus on helping the Chief Procurement Office achieve its ESG goals, and alerting companies to new revenue opportunities, Kaleida's fully-inclusive platform helps Buyers find, identify and assess Diverse Suppliers they can invite to Tender.

In 2024 Kaleida will publish £600b in both Public and Private sector tenders for suppliers, and Diverse suppliers to apply to. By increasing access to commercial opportunity, we believe we can drive equality through providing access to economic parity.
