2018 State of Supplier Diversity Report: Supplier Diversity Programs

2018 State of Supplier Diversity Report: Supplier Diversity Programs

In 2017, CVM Solutions published its groundbreaking State of
Supplier Diversity Report—Supplier Diversity Programs. Our inaugural
survey identified trends, challenges, triumphs, shortcomings, and
other interesting findings about the supplier diversity space from
the point of view of the professionals within companies’ supplier
diversity programs.


We expanded our survey for 2018 and drew more participants than
last year. In one year, much stayed the same … and much changed.
Many of the previous challenges remain, but new ones have
entered the space. For example, global supplier diversity has
become a hot new trend. Also, supplier diversity professionals are
still trying to figure out where supplier diversity is headed, given
the turbulent political climate in the United States.
