The Philadelphia Inquirer quoted Independence Supplier Diversity Director, Chuck Stefanosky, on his advice to diverse business owners during an Economy League event. “Introduce yourself as the supplier to the decision-maker way ahead of the RFP,” or request for proposal, said Chuck Stefanosky, supplier diversity director at Independence Blue Cross. “Then you’re not just a phone number on a list. Make personal connections. If you’re [a minority business enterprise] waiting for the RFP, you’re too late,” he added.
