Valuable time spent :

Supplier Diversity Alliance Canada

EY hosted Supplier Diversity Alliance Canada at their beautiful new downtown Toronto offices! Diverse Suppliers from WBE, CGLCC, IWSCC and CAMSC were there along with Canadian Corporations looking to do business with them.The match making segment was particularly valuable, in addition to the panel talks on innovation and growth.

Power the Economy

WeConnect International held its Annual Conference, ‘Power the Economy’, on 26th October that hosted women-run businesses, partner organizations and corporate sponsors. The event highlighted factors crucial to the success of diversely owned business and provided Corporations with an opportunity to discuss how to build their Supplier Diversity program.

Black & White Gala by the CGLCC

Abbas had the opportunity to attend the Black & White Gala by CGLCC. ‘It was a great evening! I congratulate Darrell and team for putting up an amazing event and showing Canadians that Supplier Diversity will continue to expand its borders.”

Supplier News :

Cecil Fingal Account Executive – Adaptability Canada (Certified with IWSCC)

‘These were my first networking events as a diverse supplier and I was thoroughly impressed. I was not expecting that level of impressive businesses that are not only interested in doing business but have programs for Diverse Suppliers.

Everyone was very welcoming and it was a great experience. Can’t wait for the next event.’

Cecil, Adaptability Canada
