Q. What is SupplierDiversity.TV? A. SupplierDiversity TV is a Frontier Technologies passion project featuring 1-on-1 interviews with supplier diversity experts.
Q. What inspired this series? A. As we grow at Frontier Technologies…we bring on a lot of new people who are not familiar with supplier diversity. We thought about developing some training videos. — Then we thought…how awesome would it be to interview some of our clients, partners, and others in the supplier diversity community to give advice and share their insights? It would be a great way to accelerate or shorten the learning curve for our new people.
Q. Who else could benefit? A. Then we thought…if we could benefit from this, why not the entire community of diverse suppliers and organizations with a supplier diversity program. So…this is our WHY and the intent behind this project.
Q. How many episodes are planned? A. We would like to produce at least 12 episodes. We hope we can get at least 12 experts to say yes to a brief interview.
Q. How can anyone in the supplier diversity community help? A. Please help us spread the word, subscribe and like our page and videos. Nominate someone to be interviewed. Please share and give us feedback and topics of interest. Send us questions that you have regarding supplier diversity in business and let’s see if we can get answers to help all our businesses thrive …thank you.
