Supplier Diversity in an Australian context is about diversifying your supply chain and procuring from Indigenous businesses. Our Managing Director Kristal Kinsela-Christie has both national and international exposure advocating for supplier diversity in Australia.
She has worked at the interface between Indigenous businesses and Corporate and Government buyers to help them do more business together.
Her leadership and advocacy led to her winning the 2017 Supply Nation Supplier Diversity Advocate of the Year Award. Her vision is to see more Indigenous businesses embedded into the supply chains of Australia’s largest buyers, and a prosperous Indigenous business sector.
Kristal has been working hard in the background on a new project that lays out strategies to support Government and Corporate buyers, and make her vision a reality.
Work is still underway at the moment, but watch this space for an exciting announcement soon!
