It is June 2020, Pride Month, and with the growing attention that the Black Lives Matter movement is receiving, I thought it would be timely to have an episode of this podcast dedicated to the importance of Diversity and inclusion in supply chain.With that in mind I invited my colleague Miguel Castro to come on the show to discuss the importance of Diversity and Inclusion, both within accompany's supply chain organisation, and also how supply chain can be used to advance Diversity and Inclusion in other organisations. As the Global Lead for SAP's Diversity Ecosystem, I knew Miguel would be ideal to comment on this, and he did not disappoint. We had a fantastic conversation around all aspects of Diversity and Inclusion, even talking about the tangible financial benefits organisations can achieve by adopting a culture and practice of D&I. I hope you enjoy listening to this episode, as much as I enjoyed making it.Now we are in June, I am trialling a new feature on the podcast - listeners stories. If you have a cool supply chain story you'd like featured on the show, send it to me via email (tom.raftery @, or just send it to me as a direct message on Twitter/LinkedIn. Audio messages will get played (unless you specifically ask me not to).To learn how supply chain leaders improve end-to-end supply chain visibility, download the research study of 1,000 COO’s and Chief Supply Chain Officers – “Surviving and Thriving How Supply Chain Leaders minimize risk and maximize opportunities” And if you want to know more about any of SAP's Digital Supply Chain solutions, head on over to and if you liked this show, please don't forget to rate and/or review it. It makes a big difference to help new people discover it. Thanks.And remember, stay healthy, stay safe, stay sane!
