Nuclear Supply Chains typically have a much more difficult time achieving standard supplier diversity goals than their counterparts. Some of the reasons for this include the volume of purchases made with the large OEMs, virtually all of which are investor-owned, the overhead necessary to support Appendix B programs, and safety requirement. Subcontracting and the engagement of Tier II suppliers is often talked about but rarely implemented to any degree of effectiveness. Many of the conferences and trade shows featuring diverse suppliers are not geared toward nuclear. This workshop will focus overcoming some of the challenges to the inclusion of diverse suppliers in the nuclear Supply Chain - a successful diverse nuclear supplier, successes in the inclusion of diverse businesses as Tier I and Tier II suppliers, and best practices to achieve these successes.
