AVD’s Corporate AV Experience an Ideal Fit for Supplier Diversity Programs
Ms. Broening cited the benefits for AVD clients who will now be able to apply any dollars spent with AVD towards their diverse supplier dollar goals. “Supplier diversity programs provide advantages that resonate with the goals of many corporations,” she said. “For large and mid-size companies that are trying to or are mandated to increase diverse spend in their supply chains, hiring an experienced women-owned vendor to handle the AV for their corporate conferences and events is a win-win.”
