Jason Roberts, CEO & Founder of Kaleida explains more.
“For a while, we have been thinking of ways to recognise the achievements of corporate buyer partners whose strategic social value programmes attain ‘Fully-inclusive Supplier Diversity’ status.
“We wanted a symbol to recognise this accomplishment.
“A symbol to aspire towards.
“A token to reflect their understanding that Exclusive truly is not Inclusive.
“It is with great pleasure that I introduce you to that Kaleida Gold Seal.
“This seal is awarded to firms whose Supplier Diversity programmes achieve ‘Fully inclusive Supplier Diversity’ status.
“Our mission is to ensure that no one is left behind.
“That all underrepresented communities have access to equity.
“And that no one, irrespective of their diverse identity experiences alienation from revenue-generating opportunities.”
“Jason and the Kaleida team are doing inspirational work in the supplier diversity field and we are honoured to have them as strategic partners of ours.”
