Garland Scarboro spent seven years in auditing before making the switch to diversity and inclusion. He enjoyed attending diversity workshops, so the move made sense. Scarboro couldn't be happier. He gets to pursue a long-standing passion and shape diversity and inclusion policies that affect employees and vendors at Delhaize America, which operates food chains. The conglomerate has partnered with women- and minority-owned businesses like Pride Communications, Inc., a PR and marketing firm; FDY, Inc., a catering company; and Scott's Sauce Company, Inc., whose tangy barbecue sauce is sold at Food Lion grocery stores, a subsidiary of Delhaize America.
The job Scarboro does is crucial these days, when hard economic times sometimes call for a heavy-handed approach to slashing budgets and cutting programs. "I have to remind management not to forget small businesses," says Scarboro. He's been able to help a vendor who distributes an ethnic hair product celebrate its 20th year doing business with Delhaize America and also identify new opportunities.
The new constraints mean Scarboro has to do more with less and work long hours-and he's had to get creative. "We use affinity groups for community relations, enrollment, and retention," says Scarboro.
Scarboro predicts diversity departments will see further consolidation, and perhaps even a monumental change.
"It was common for companies to have a person dedicated to managing diversity programs, but budget cuts have reduced department staff," says Scarboro.

In other ways our competitors were better," said Garland Scarboro, Food Lion manager of diversity and inclusion. "This interaction gave us a good opportunity to learn."
Growing its vendor base with a diverse group of suppliers is the overall goal of Food Lion's supplier diversity efforts, Garland said.
"We want more suppliers who will help us mirror our customer and community base, improve our service levels, help us increase sales and profits and reduce costs, and satisfy the needs and demands of our increasingly diverse customers," he added.
