The Wisconsin Supplier Development Council, Inc. (WSDC) is a nonprofit organization consisting of companies and public agencies from throughout the state. Members work together (with the assistance of the WSDC staff and Board of Directors) to increase the amount and quality of business transacted with minority-owned firms. Membership in the Council is a voluntary effort that demonstrates the initiative of the private sector concerning minority business opportunities.
The WSDC is a freestanding supplier development council. It is an affiliate of the National Minority Supplier Development Council, and one of 39 regional Councils operating in the United States. The WSDC was created by the Wisconsin business community to address the means available to support minority business development.
Many activities and programs of the Council are designed to bring buyers and sellers together to discuss business problems and share knowledge. The Council shares its collective knowledge through a quarterly newsletter, monthly general membership meetings, ongoing membership mailings and activities.
The WSDC endeavors to meet the challenge of fostering minority business development, while increasing the quantity and quality of viable minority suppliers.
