E&I Hosts: Saul Alvarado, Vice President, Construction, Energy & Facilities David Manz, Category Business Manager, Construction, Energy & Facilities
Guest: Mark Cartwright, Former Director, Supplier Diversity at E&I*
Join us for part one of our two-part discussion on supplier diversity within the education space, particularly for facilities departments, EH&S, and other departments responsible for serving their campus.
In this episode, dive into the history of supplier diversity within the U.S. Find out what's important to schools and universities and how to get the conversation going around supplier diversity. We'll tap into Mark's experience for a look at what works, what doesn't work, and what can be done better to initiate, grow, and sustain a supplier diversity program.
*Please note: Though Mark has moved on from E&I since publishing this episode, we believe the information he shared remains important and relevant for our listeners, which is why it remains published.
Cooperatively Speaking is hosted by E&I Cooperative Services, the only member-owned, non-profit procurement cooperative exclusively focused on serving the needs of education. Visit our website at www.eandi.org/podcast.
