Supplier Diversity Programme

Pinsent Masons

We wanted to transform and diversify our supply chain, making it a strategic asset for the firm.

Our programme: • Established a team with buy-in from senior management; • Changed buyer perceptions of diverse suppliers; • Forged strong relationships with external organisations; • Used technology to impact change. Major successes: • Over 65% of supply base is now ‘diverse’; • We’ve supported diverse suppliers through innovative partnerships; • We’ve demonstrated that our diverse supply chain supports the firm’s strategic objectives, including winning more business and meeting our ESG commitments; • We’ve inspired other organisations to start their supplier diversity programme.
