MSDUK Events 2022

Our events provide a unique opportunity for ethnic minority businesses, procurement professionals, supplier diversity leaders and our partners to connect, network and build lasting business relationships. We also offer peer-to-peer learning and development opportunities to all our stakeholders through a range of workshops, seminars, training and executive education programmes. As we bring back live in-person events in 2022, we welcome our certified EMBs and corporate members to these events.
