Henderson Pledges to Diversify its Supply Chain

Startland News

Startland News recently announced that Henderson Engineers is one of 12 major companies based in Kansas City to commit to diversifying its supply chain and to support small businesses through its buying decisions. The effort is part of the ongoing CEO-to-CEO Challenge spearheaded by KC Rising, an economic development initiative geared toward boosting property within the KC region.

As a challenge participant, Henderson has agreed to a variety of pledges, namely:

  • Buy from small and diverse‐owned businesses when possible.
  • Be an advocate for the cause internally and with peers.
  • Establish an internal accountability framework around intentional, inclusive procurement to include data tracking and reporting of new and existing vendors.
  • Tie inclusive procurement goals to the firm’s strategic priorities.
  • Evaluate sourcing and procurement spend and explore opportunities to grow and expand relationships and innovate processes to include diverse suppliers.
  • Build the diversity of the firm’s supplier pipeline.
  • Spotlight success stories of diverse suppliers.
  • Add resources for development and measurement of these activities.
