As today's minorities become tomorrow majorities in the consumer driven Supply Chain, major Corporations know that their suppliers; their suppliers' workers; and the consumers in the communities where suppliers are located and the markets they serve are all their customers. They know that remaining globally competitive - increasing market share and avoiding market share lost - requires that they strategically realign their supply base to mirror the evolving consumer base.

They know too that the real competition is not one Corporation versus another, but between their respective Supply Chains - from the point of raw material production to the moment of consumer decision-making. They know that the higher the percentage of performance aligned suppliers, the lower their cost, the better their customer service, and higher their profits and, that the only meaningful criteria for supplier value in Supply Chains is their ability to add value to production, reduce cost of production, and to innovate.


Within this context, it is the vision of DMSCA to develop a Community of Practice (CoP) consisting of Suppliers and Customers committed to the implementation of an approach to supply base diverisification called the Corporate Mentoring Program (CMP) that engages diverse suppliers in processes to achieve Supply Chain Performance Excellence and competitive positioning within Customer's strategically sourced Supply Chain Networks.


The mission of the Diverse Manufacturing Supply Chain Alliance (DMSCA) is to

  • Support Corporate Member’s (Customers)  interest to identify, qualify, and select mature and maturing Manufacturing, Logistics, and Distribution Suppliers for competitive and sustained engagement and job creation in strategically sourced Supply Chains


  • Mature and Maturing Manufacturing and Logistics Suppliers  (Suppliers) Member’s inters in qualifying and being  positioned for competitive engagement in its customer’s strategically sourced Supply Chains
