Business Diversity Opportunity Fair
Diverse business partners are beneficial for both parties but some might find it difficult to get connect with the right people. Honda has made it their mission over the years to help connect businesses with diverse partners through their partnership network event.
We are excited to announce that our President, Angela Morrow will be speaking at the 5th annual Honda Partnership Network on Wednesday, October 9, 2019.
The Honda Partnership Network helps Tier one suppliers find diverse partners that may be positioned to meet their needs. The connections are made through matchmaker-style meetings where suppliers and companies are able to discuss their services and needs.
Honda began holding this annual event in 2015 and in just four years they've already made a large impact. Since the first supplier diversity networking event in 2015, Honda has seen the number of diverse suppliers in its supply chain grow beyond 3,000. The Honda Partnership Network has also helped Honda increase its diverse spend from $2.25 billion in 2014, to well over $3 billion dollars last year.
The Matchmaker Meetings have sparked over 1,300 connections to take place between Honda and diverse partners with the goal of new business relationships being created.
Morrow is a featured speaker and will present during the 1:30 PM - 5:00 PM Matchmaker Meetings on the subject of Diverse Suppliers.
