The Webster’s Dictionary definition of the word “evolve” is to “develop gradually: to develop something gradually, often into something more complex or advanced, or undergo such development.”
We all know that developing a business into a sustainable, productive, valuable entity is a process; as is developing a robust, successful, viable supply chain and supplier diversity program.
All of these things are “living entities” which must develop and change over time, or face stagnation and possible irrelevance.
We are pleased to present the Evolve Award recognition at the NY&NJ MSDC Expo 2013 luncheon which will acknowledge MBEs and Corporate Supplier Diversity Programs and Advocates, who have conveyed an “evolution” or change in the previous 12-24 months to bring their business, or program, to a new position of increased effectiveness, value or relevancy to their customers or internal clients and MBEs.
This is not a “competition,” it is a showcase to share ideas, highlight achievements and to spark further meaningful conversations between MBEs and Corporate Members, and MBE to MBEs, regarding their efforts and achievements toward further development and success.
If you are interested in showcasing your recent (12-24 months) achievements in meaningful evolution regarding new business offerings, initiatives, service areas, delivery methods, and innovations submit a succinct short summary (500 words or less) of the challenge and/or opportunity presented and their response/innovation/evolution, methods/tools utilized and the outcome in changing your business, or Supplier Diversity Program. The deadline for submissions is May 20th.
A committee will ensure that the information presented is recent (within 12-24 months) and that the challenge/opportunity and evolution is adequately communicated in the short write up.
Also an opportunity will be created for the companies to create a short video summary (sort of elevator pitch) which will be played on the Council’s website and on monitors on the Expo Trade Show floor. The participants will receive an award and be recognized during the luncheon. Of course a photo and press release will be issued. What more could you ask for to highlight your growth?
