The Billion Dollar Roundtable was created in 2001 to recognize and celebrate corporations that achieved spending of at least $1 billion with diverse-owned suppliers. The BDR promotes and shares best practices in supply chain diversity excellence through various means such as the production of policy papers, webinars and summits. In discussions, the members review common issues, opportunities and strategies.  BDR encourages corporate entities to continue growing their supplier diversity programs by increasing commitment and spending levels each year. The BDR inducts new members annually.
