WEConnect International partnered with MSD China, a Chinese non-profit organization working to support diverse-owned businesses in China, to host the Supplier Diversity Summit in Beijing, China, this August 30, 2018. The Summit was an opportunity for WEConnect International corporate members, such as Accenture, Cummins, Dell, ExxonMobil, IBM, Intel Corp, J&J, Marriott International, MSD/Merck, SAP/Ariba, Walmart and Wyndham Destinations to share their insights on how diverse-owned businesses in Greater China can utilize supplier diversity and inclusion initiatives for greater market access. The Summit included a matchmaking session and evening awards ceremony.
WEConnect International is grateful to Accenture, IBM, and Intel Corp for their generous support of the Summit and looks forward to future opportunities to partner with MSD China.
“We were thrilled to partner with MSD China on their tenth annual Summit and look forward to a greater collaboration. I was inspired by our dedicated corporate members sourcing in Greater China and deeply appreciate their continued support for women-owned businesses, as well as other underutilized suppliers,” Elizabeth A. Vazquez, CEO and Co-Founder, WEConnect International.
