This past week the Canadian Aboriginal and Minority Supplier Council (CAMSC) hosted its annual Business Achievement Awards. The awards show celebrated diverse and corporate leaders in supplier diversity.

“While we celebrate the achievements of our nominees and winners, we know that every one of our certified members are leaders in supplier diversity,” said Cassandra Dorrington, President and CEO, CAMSC. “Their effort to drive inclusive procurement opportunities is the reason why over $2 billion has been spent by our corporate members on these suppliers. As this momentum grows, we are committed to supporting each of these leaders every step of the way.”
