JRT Realty | Diversity Spending Implications for Corporate Real Estate

Diversity, Equity & Inclusion have become trending topics, especially as of late, but the truth is supplier diversity initiatives have been in effect in some corporations for decades. A few have achieved over $1 billion in annual spending across their diverse supplier base. Yet few  of those dollars are contributed through real estate services. It appears that we are at a juncture where corporate supplier diversity goals are growing and corporate real estate can significantly contribute to achieving those goals.

The maturation of supplier diversity efforts applies not only to corporate programs, but also to the suppliers themselves, and the nature of goods and services supplied. Successful corporate supplier diversity starts with policy and becomes an integral part of corporate culture throughout the planning and review process of receiving goods and services.

To learn more about the implications of having a supplier diversity program and working with diverse suppliers, please read our recently published report HERE.
