Diversifying the Federal Supply Chain Summit

The Office of the Procurement Ombudsman (OPO) hosts the “Diversifying the Federal Supply Chain Summit” to increase the diversity of bidders on federal government contracts. Now in its second year, this one-day session is designed to increase awareness of the public and private sector programs that can help all gender identities, Indigenous Peoples, racialized people, persons with disabilities and minority groups access federal contracting opportunities.

The event includes presentations by representatives from the Government of Canada and private sector organizations, workshops designed to help suppliers gain the practical skills needed to win federal government contracts, and keynote from The Honourable Anita Anand, Minister of Public Services and Procurement. Our very own Kathy Cheng moderates two key panels and shares our Redwood Classics Diversity journey.
