On October 20, 2022, Global Containers will attend Toyota’s Opportunity Exchange at Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, Michigan. One of the largest events of its kind in the industry and an important affirmation of Toyota’s commitment to diversity and inclusion.
This Toyota’s annual professional development and networking conference provides a dynamic forum to gain knowledge and facilitate building relationships between Toyota Tier I suppliers and Certified Diverse Businesses.
This a great opportunity to explore new ways to work together for greater business growth, success, and mobility. While also staying up to date about the current automotive industry trends & innovation.
We are also very excited to participate in a Fireside Chat with Team Toyota athlete, Jerome Avery. A guide runner with U.S. Paralympics since 2004 and has guided David Brown, one of the world’s top visually-impaired sprinters, since 2014.

The purpose of our participation in the program is to continue to unlock the inner potential of our business leaders. Therefore, Global Containers has invited the entire team to participate in the expert-led classes, covering the most important business topics. In addition, our executive leaders gained access to a national network of business owners, a local business coach, and a comprehensive, individualized Growth Plan to map out the next three years of Global Containers.

Supplier Diversity, the key to U.S. economic growth
“According to Forbes, Supplier Diversity Could Add $280 Billion To The U.S. Economy.”
Our Latino-owned company has the privilege to have been selected to participate in the Supplier Diversity Advancement Program 2022. A highly exclusive and selective program delivered by the Latino Business Action Network (LBAN).
“The 2019 SOLE report found that only 8% of Latino-owned businesses reported securing a corporate or government contract.”
Thus, the program aims to champion participants to better position their businesses to obtain corporate contracts and be the bridge of connection to corporate partners who are seeking to procure from minority-owned businesses (MBEs).
Our mission in the program is to better position Global Containers as a top candidate to supply packaging and logistics solutions to distinguished corporations. With this in mind, we aim to learn and apply the material provided by the LBAN professional consultants and to take advantage of the corporate connections that the program offers.
We will be working on:
Marketing & Branding – Exciting changes are on the way!
Capabilities Statement Redesign – Focusing on the VALUE, STRENGTHS, & UNIQUENESS we bring to the industry
Due Diligence – Avoiding disruption in the supply chain
Sales – Increasing our outreach & profits
LBAN corporate partners:
