First-ever virtual Supplier Diversity Exchange
Every year Allstate hosts a Supplier Diversity Exchange, which gives diverse suppliers and startups the opportunity to network with key Allstate decision-makers and our major suppliers and strategic partners. Due to COVID-19, in 2020 Allstate made the exchange virtual, bringing together nearly 1,300 leaders from a multitude of industries to discuss why now, more than ever, supplier diversity is crucial in creating equity in America.
In her opening remarks, Cheryl Harris, Senior Vice President, Sourcing & Procurement, spoke to this idea. “As when diverse suppliers are successful, they hire from their communities, enhancing the economic vitality of our cities, our states, and our nation,” she said.
