Customers today are more curious than ever, they want to know the stories and the people behind the brands they are financially supporting. They are looking to understand company values, and to see companies collaborating with diverse suppliers which gives underrepresented groups greater visibility, increases economic inclusion all the while creating meaningful social change.
