Birmingham Civil Rights Institute (BCRI) and Skye Connect Incorporated have partnered to present a one-day supplier diversity training entitled The Business Imperative of Economic Supplier Diversity with New Metrics and Strategies.  The training will take place on Wednesday, July 15, from 8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. at BCRI. The training will be led by nationally recognized supplier diversity expert, Alice Gordon, CEO of Skye Connect Incorporated, along with Layle McKelvey, Supplier Diversity Manager from United Airlines.

The cost is $295 for the day training, $185 for the half-day afternoon event and $79 to attend the reception only. Supplier diversity managers, human resource professionals, sourcing agents, procurement managers, small and medium size business enterprises, elected leaders and business executives are encouraged to attend the one day session.
