Supplier Diversity Conferences

The 912 Group host four mini-conferences before the 9th Annual OhioMBE Awards.  Supplier diversity professionals and purchasing officials will gain valuable insights and best practices from industry experts.  Each participant will receive a Supplier Diversity directory, lunch, and admission to the half-day event.

The OhioMBE Supplier Diversity Summer Workshop Series is a comprehensive program designed to enhance collaboration, share best practices, and provide professional development opportunities for area supplier diversity and purchasing professionals. The series will feature various workshops and seminars covering supply chain management, business growth strategies, and sustainable practices.
