Healthcare Supplier Diversity Symposium

In 2015, Owens & Minor hosted the 10th annual Healthcare Supplier Diversity Symposium and brought attention to the Global Soap Project as a disruptive innovation in the healthcare supply chain that is literally saving lives.

Owens & Minor is committed to creating value and promoting a healthcare supply chain that increases growth opportunities for diverse companies.

To be disruptive is to upset or disturb the status quo. To be innovative requires investment in ground-breaking ideation activities.

Disruptive Innovation is the emergent concept that will be leveraged to accelerate growth opportunities that capitalize on the synergies of the entire supply chain in the delivery of value to provider customers.
