THE HOME OF THE GLOBAL SOURCING STANDARD
THE FESTIVAL OF SOURCING IS BACK!
If you want to be at the avant-garde of sourcing, you need to be there.
This year’s Festival of Sourcing will be all about Modern and Social Sourcing. Think agile sourcing; sustainability; impact sourcing; standardisation; DEI; workforce wellbeing; responsible automation; Tech4Good; impact sourcing and supplier diversity – in addition to the Future of CX and industry-wide best practices.
Also we have partnered with the Council for Supplier Diversity UK to make Day 2 a deep dive on how to build diversity into supply chains – open to buyers, diverse suppliers, NGOs and advisors.
Our speakers include:
Jay Rohman, Head of IT Sourcing at Lloyds Banking Group

"What a great event in a great location! Instead of somewhat boring black tie / strictly business events you have a freedom of self-expression and free fun communication with your piers! A great addition to the good business and social discussions and conversations!"
Boris Kontsevoi, President, Intetics Inc.
The GSA is delighted to announce its collaboration with the Council for Supplier Diversity UK (SDUK) for day 2 of the Festival of Sourcing 2023. Join us on the 14th June, where we’ll be taking a deep dive into all things Supplier Diversity at SDUK’s first full Supplier Diversity Day.
We’ll be discussing how corporates can drive impactful programs for inclusive supply chains, hearing challenges and success stories from those already on their journeys, looking at how we can drive more business into the hands of smaller suppliers and how collaboration and synergy with NGOs can help diversify your supply chain. We’ll also be introducing corporates to UK diverse organisations and advising on mentoring initiatives in place that can help make your diverse supply chain targets a reality.
The morning session will focus on corporates at any stage in their supplier diversity programme and the afternoon will focus on the diverse suppliers themselves; to enable both sides to better understand each other and move to mutually aligned objectives.
