Partnering with Supplier Diversity Professionals to Leverage Success

The Council of Supplier Diversity Professionals (CSDP) was established in Detroit, Michigan in early 1998 by a group of supplier diversity professionals to assist in the ongoing growth and development of our profession and careers. CSDP provides a forum to share information, ideas and issues concerning supplier diversity. The Council is composed of supplier diversity professionals from all industries with titles from Coordinator to Vice President.

Our mission is to create a premier environment for supply-chain professionals and focus on their development through education, sharing of knowledge, networking, mentoring, benchmarking and best practices. The Council also provides career-development strategies for supplier diversity professionals.

The CSDP Board of Directors is comprised of the following positions: chairman, vice chairman, secretary, and treasurer. The standing committees are Finance, Marketing/Communications, Membership/By-Laws, Technology, Professional Development, and Program.
