The numbers are showing why diversity works Forty-three percent of companies with diverse management exhibited higher profits. Increasingly, global brands are recognizing the strong potential for supplier diversity programs to help them grow their businesses—whether through increased market share among emerging customer bases, stronger share price, faster innovation cycles or more intangible measures such as brand awareness and loyalty. Today, rivals fight for their share of rapidly evolving global markets rather than a share of stable domestic markets. As ethnic minorities and women increase as a proportion of the population and participate in greater numbers in the entrepreneurial economy.
