IBM Fully Supports Minority Supplier Development in China
As a Charter Member of MSD China, IBM has always been fully supporting us. Whether in Beijing, Shanghai, Shenzhen, or Chengdu, IBM has implemented this program firmly and effectively.
Ms. Vivian Wei from IBM Shenzhen Branch, on behalf of MSD China, met with Ms. Marianne Strobel, Executive Director, Supplier Diversity, AT&T Services, to discuss on how AT&T can be more involved with MSD China in the future at Small Business Breakfast during 2013 APAC Best Practices Conference in Shenzhen on March 26.
Mr. Cyril Li and Mr. David She from IBM Chengdu Branch were sent to participate in a symposium with MBEs in Chengdu on March 28. During the symposium, they gave wonderful speeches involving the history of IBM’s supplier diversity program, corporate procurement process, needs, execution, and staff appraisal, etc.. Moreover, they also shared best practices on IBM’s supplier diversity program with 7 MBEs present.
"It’s more vivid and direct to make more IBMers personally experience supplier diversity program with their eyes and ears, which is better than any corporate training or sharing from my side.” Ms. Tina Wu from IBM’s supplier diversity team in China said.
