"We use NMSDC's Guide to a Corporate Minority Supplier Diversity Program as the backbone of all that we do," said Bill Cooper, director of supplier diversity at the school. "The Guide has proven over and over again that by following the fundamentals associated with Supplier Diversity, success will follow. Key among these principals is a top-down commitment to the process. We also understand that success will not necessarily show its face."

Tracey Jeter, VMSDC's president, says the Council has been more than impressed with the dedication the university and Cooper has shown to the group's initiatives.

Cooper said U. Va.'s commitment is evidenced by its three full-time employees dedicated to supplier diversity.
"It is important to remember that while spending is the most accepted measure of success, it comes only after a lot of hard work-work on the part of the vendor and the customer," Cooper explained.
Even when the word "recession" has many firms worried about the future, Cooper said the country's economic turmoil needs to serve as a catalyst for action.
"Now are times for diverse firms to assess their strategies, evaluate their competition and remake themselves as leaner and meaner partners to their customers and the businesses they represent," he said. "Corporations can use this time to highlight existing diverse firms and remember than in many cases, they can be more flexible than the competition. Both need to listen to the other without losing sight of the facts."
