For 20 years, Herman Miller has advocated for the growth and inclusion of small and diverse businesses within its supply chain. And we’ve been a driving force for supporting Michigan businesses and our local economy.
So it’s appropriate that we’re sponsoring an exhibit this week at the 29th annual Michigan Minority Procurement Conference, “Rising Above A Dynamic Economy,” which will give us a chance to connect with some of the most accomplished minority business entrepreneurs in the state. It’s a great opportunity for Herman Miller to remain connected to what’s happening in the minority business community, to network and continue to build relationships with existing and potential suppliers, and to identify firms who can help bring new and innovative products to market for our customers.
The conference, held May 4 through 6, is hosted by the Michigan Minority Supplier Development Council at Cobo Conference and Exhibition Center in Detroit, Michigan. The show will feature presentations, professional development seminars, and networking events. Around 300 major corporations and 1,200 minority business enterprises are expected to convene.
We’re looking forward to continuing our tradition of advocating for inclusiveness and diversity, and supporting our community.
