PROGRESS 2020

WHAT IS PROGRESS 2020

Progress 2020 is a formal partnership between supplier.io, Diversity Reporting Solutions, and Supplierty News to incorporate achievable goals and metrics to quantify the corporate benefits of supplier diversity and small business programs.  For many years, organizations have promoted the need to support small and diverse businesses yet have never established an industry-wide project plan to expand upon a market worth well over $100 billion in annual spend. 

Progress 2020 will look to create a business case for supplier diversity and small business based on publicly available information recorded over the past 10 to 15 years.  The information compiled through our research will be used to answer some of the industry’s toughest questions including;

  • What are the future national demographic projections and how will it impact American wealth?
  • How can supplier diversity programs evolve into departments assisting in revenue generation?
  • What is the future of supplier diversity and why does it matter to America?

Progress 2020 will operate in two segments

  1. Research & Data Interpretation (Diversity Reporting Solutions and Supplierty News)
  2. Supply Chain Analysis (supplier.io)

OUR COMMITMENTS

Over the next 2 years, we are committed to engaging organizations and individuals within the supplier diversity and small business community to accomplish the goals set forth. Our goals are purposefully specific and measurable to create a sustainable foundation within the industry for future growth. We believe all goals included in our commitments can be completed by December 31st, 2020.

Progress 2020 will track all commitments based on percentage of completion (e.g. if the goal is $100.00, and we have recorded $30.00, the goal is 30% complete).  The percentage of completion for each commitment will be posted each week over the next 5 weeks from September 15th to October 13th, after which quarterly updates will be given at a minimum.

Progress 2020 will Track the following data points with clients:
