About Mid-Michigan Suppliers & Hire Diversity Summit

Mid-Michigan Supplies Diversity Summit represents an opportunity for corporations to collaborate with minority-owned companies, create economic opportunity, and enhance their businesses and careers. The full-day summit is designed to boost spending with BIPOC owned businesses, launch new vendor partnerships and increase the number of successful underrepresented small business suppliers. It is also designed to help make job markets and workplaces more representative of the communities they serve. The general principle of fairness and a level playing field provides a foundation for diversity suppliers and career fair as well as other similar initiatives. Corporations have experienced the benefits of unlocking the power of diversity to deliver innovation and capture new markets — and there is more work to be done. 


Mid-Michigan Suppliers & Hire Diversity Summit will be held at Lansing Center on October 11, 2022 from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30.
