Discover how leading retailers are advancing their DEI strategies with the support of community partnerships. Our speakers will discuss how integrating diversity into corporate culture—through employee resource groups (ERGs), DEI education, and strategic alliances—enables retailers to establish authentic connections with the communities they serve. The session will explore supplier diversity, including both direct and indirect procurement practices, emphasizing the positive impact of sourcing merchandise and services from diverse suppliers. Join us for an in-depth look at how these approaches foster inclusion and drive meaningful change in the retail landscape.
