Demystifying Procurement & Diversifying the Supply Chain

  • Wednesday, May 11, 2022
  • Thursday, June 09, 2022

Procurement is often not well understood nor on the radars of diverse women entrepreneurs. Yet procurement offers women entrepreneurs valuable opportunities for business growth and development, especially as efforts to increase supplier diversity multiply. We are bringing back the "Demystifying Procurement and Diversifying the Supply Chain" series and following the Procurement Assistance Canada (PAC) supplier journey to help entrepreneurs navigate procurement processes. The focus for this part of the series will be on Stage 1 & 2: Raising Awareness/Paying Attention.
