Putting your values into practice for long-term success

A sustainable, successful supplier diversity program takes work, commitment—and expert guidance.

For more than four decades, JKA has served as the trusted navigator that helps purposeful organizations like yours leapfrog over the dysfunctional “just build it and they’ll come” approach to increase spending with diverse suppliers.
