Through Astra, supplier diversity managers at publically-traded corporations and government agencies meet qualified Tier I and Tier II suppliers to help achieve supply chain and diversity goals. A dedicated Astra staff person assists corporate and agency members research the WBENC database for potential suppliers for strategic sourcing needs and upcoming contract opportunities.
Corporate members receive recognition for their supplier diversity advocacy through Astra’s annual Done Deals program and Corporate Advocate of the Year award. Members also are invited to take part in Astra’s Best Practices Supplier Diversity Quarterly Summits. The summits provide a safe harbor environment for sharing ideas and challenges, and engaging in informal mentoring support.
