On Nov. 16, CBS hosted its annual Supplier Diversity Outreach Event at CBS Studio Center. Company Chairman and CEO Leslie Moonves provided remarks, and Kevin Frazier, co-host of “Entertainment Tonight,” led the annual awards presentation. More than 50 diverse-owned companies participated in the event, which also included a supplier expo and targeted matchmaker meetings. In recognizing the importance of the Supplier Diversity Initiative at CBS, Leslie Moonves said: “Supplier diversity is good business for CBS. By integrating supplier diversity into our sourcing process, we ensure that all vendors have equal access to opportunities to do business with CBS.”
