Washington, DC—June 8, 2015— Longevity Consulting has been selected to participate in the IBM Supplier Diversity Mentor Program. The objective of the Mentor Program is to advance suppliers by having coaching and teaching sessions to share knowledge and experience. Selected suppliers are provided with expertise, tools, and resources to promote, support, and enhance their business acumen. The program intends to foster long-term relationships with suppliers that will help IBM deliver innovation, quality products, and remain competitive in the market.
IBM has a long history of fostering diversity in its supply chain. The IBM Supplier Diversity program implemented a commercial Mentor Program in 1997 to facilitate the development of diverse suppliers. The Mentor Program matches IBM executives with selected diverse suppliers to address needs and goals identified by suppliers. Suppliers are provided with training and education ranging from one-on-one discussions as part of the on-going relationship building to offerings designed to enhance business skills. The business skills that IBM’s educational program provide or improve upon are quality, financial management proficiencies, strategic planning and technology. The Mentor Program builds and maintains a community of diverse suppliers, provides IBM with strategic relationships in the small business community, and allows IBM to develop stronger business relationships with customers.
