Procurement and Equality and Diversity Training
Content: Updated: April 2020
Suitable for: All involved with the process of procurement
Group Size: 12 Delegates
Delivered to: Two separate audiences (see below)
This programme is designed for two separate audiences:
Contractors and suppliers wishing to develop or enhance their approaches to Equality and Diversity
Procurement teams developing Equality and Diversity criteria, competencies and measures for potential suppliers to be included within tendering or procurement requirements.
Procurement processes and requirements in respect of Equality and Diversity have changed considerably in recent years and have (thankfully) moved away from the perennial standard “Do you have an Equality and Diversity Policy Y/N ?” question.
Modern and enlightened procurement professionals are now affording significant weightings in respect of Equality and Diversity ensuring that contracted organisations can both demonstrate desired values and share the responsibility of compliance in respect of statutory and legal duties.
