Supplier Diversity September is a month-long event hosted by Supply Nation that highlights the advantages of working with a diverse range of suppliers and champions the many Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander-owned organisations making waves in Australia.
Supply Nation has a database of over 2,000 verified Indigenous businesses, along with more than 440 member organisations committed to supplier diversity. Throughout the month of September, they will showcase Indigenous business on their social media, share success stories and provide insights into increasing engagement between members and suppliers.
The annual celebration serves as a springboard for conversations around the efforts of organisations to support, engage with and develop a prosperous Indigenous business sector, as well as work to close the economic gap.
How to participate:
- Hold a meet-the-buyer event and invite Indigenous businesses to attend
- Host a morning tea or information session for your employees or clients
- Incorporate an article on supplier diversity into your company newsletter
- Visit the Supply Nation website to download the #SupplierDiversitySeptember promotional pack for your email signature and social media
