Impact sourcing | Athena Alliance

May 25, 2023
9:00 AM PT | 12 PM ET

Talent, be it in-house or with your sourcing partners, has become complex in 2023. Global services, especially, are always on the lookout for talent sources that are highly engaged and stable, ensuring high-quality work and low attrition. Impact Sourcing, or hiring skilled and motivated talent from disadvantaged groups around the world, is proving to be a solution – helping forward-thinking organizations tap into new talent pools, fill roles, create pipelines, and realize substantial business benefits.

Everest Group has designed a panel for Athena Alliance leaders and decision-makers. CXOs and several founders will share real-world lessons on creating an inclusive workforce focusing on marginalized communities and the business case to persuade the skeptics. All have a particular focus on women – as UN Women calls it – Gender Responsive Procurement. You will want to engage all these companies because of how they are marrying quality global services and sustainability, the ultimate of “doing good while doing well.”

Any organization interested in learning more about sustainability, environmental, social, and governance (ESG) objectives, and impact sourcing and is looking to get started with an initiative of their own should attend💻.

What questions does the event address?

✅ What are the key trends and drivers leading to impact sourcing demand?
✅ What are the key benefits of impact sourcing for providers and buyers of outsourcing services?
✅ What are some significant impact sourcing initiatives by traditional service providers and impact sourcing specialists?
✅ What are the recommendations for implementing impact sourcing and challenges faced by buyers and service providers?
