The Staples’ Supplier Diversity Program represents one of the company’s core values. Lesa Rivers, Director, Supplier Diversity at Staples Business Advantage, is responsible for collaborating with diverse businesses to increase diversity participation, reduce supply chain cost, and increase value delivered to customers and communities.
