Decideware and “FORGE: Championing Supplier Diversity”


Pepsi, Merck, IBM, IHG… what do we all have in common?
A deep commitment to Diversity & Inclusion.

Diversity & Inclusion continues to bubble up as the #1 topic that organizations want to elevate and address in 2021 – especially when it comes to Procurement. Procurement Foundry is hosting a world-class conference “FORGE: Championing Supplier Diversity” on Thursday, February 25, 2021 and Decideware is proud to be sponsoring the event.

While diversity and inclusion has always been important, the topic has moved from just being an item on the agenda to BEING the agenda – the WHOLE agenda. Procurement Foundry has garnered the ‘who’s who’ of diversity support organizations to speak at the conference. It is exciting to see these organizations and procurement leaders joining forces, in this single conference, to share their experience, learnings and successes.

Several of our clients approached us and asked if we would help enable and automate their programs by collecting and reporting on diversity and inclusion data. Why did they approach us?

Because as an agency management enterprise software solution Decideware is already helping advertisers with data collection and business intelligence related to their agency engagements. Incorporating diversity data is a natural extension of what we already do. Whether advertisers want to manage diversity spend with agencies, the diversity profile of agency staff working on their business, or the creative content they produce, we help advertisers operationalize and collect data that informs their Diversity & Inclusion program and metrics. The data and transparency help guide their decision making and enable companies to monitor progress against their goals. We are proudly working with world class organizations that are having an impact on diversity and inclusion and we are humbled to be part of their solution.

We look forward to attending the “FORGE: Championing Supplier Diversity” conference and continuing to learn about this most important topic.

If we miss you at the conference, we are just an email away.
