ESDP continues it’s roadshow! After an event in Amsterdam in April, ESDP hosted an event in Berlin to showcase the importance of Supplier Diversity & Inclusion in Europe on June 29th, 2022.
Andrea Fimian, CEO & Founder of fips consulting, moderated a corporate panel with Supplier Diversity & Inclusion experts from global corporations. The discussion covered why corporates have Supplier Diversity & Incusion programs, the benefits of it and what effect it has on the economy but also on each and everyone’s private life.
Open Network also provided some great insights on data why Minority Business Matter in Europe as 10% of the EU population are from a non white ethnic minority. Globally, migrants contribute more in taxes – 2,5Trillion USD – than they receive in benefits, health & education. (source)
Another impressive fact on Innovation from the UK Minority Business Matter Report: 20.8% of minority-led SMEs – and 24.3% of black-led ones – engaged in process innovation in 2018, compared with 14.8% of white-led ones. Minority SMEs are also much more likely to engage in product or service innovation (30.3%) than others (18.5%). (source)
