Diversity Entrepreneurs Partnership Initiative

Our Mission

Our mission is simple. We aim to create a sustainable and equitable ecosystem within the global health industry supply chain operations and management.

Our Vision

The Diversity Entrepreneurs Partnership Initiative (D.E.P.I.) is a strategic funding and collaborative partnership that focuses on creating inclusivity in health industry supply chain operations and management and in overall healthcare business. D.E.P.I. is steadfast in its pursuit of fostering an equitable ecosystem within the health industry.

Armed with continuous research, strategic partners for education and sensitization campaigns, D.E.P.I. strives to bring and maintain sustainable solutions and diversity to a critical industry.

The Challenge

Despite a lack of data on the contribution of African Americans in the healthcare supply chain operations in the USA, the N.A.A.C.P. indicates that African Americans’ participation is less than 2% in the Washington, DC, Maryland, and Virginia regional market. G.H.M.’s research via a five-year attendance of major health industry trade shows and conferences across the U.S., South America, Europe, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia confirms the total lack of global progress regarding the inclusion of African Americans, native Africans, and continental Africa as a whole in this vital industry.

IBIS World predicts that medical supplies wholesaling industry’s revenue will grow at an annualized rate of 2.5% over the next five years despite the pandemic revealing alarming social disparities impacting African Americans in all health industry sectors. This disturbing statistic points to deep-rooted systemic neglects that MedAlliesWorld wishes to remedy with a new generation of entrepreneurs through the implementation of D.E.P.I.

African Americans have experienced 21.5% of all Covid-19 deaths in the U.S.A. However, they represent only 12.4% of the population, thus exposing the need to create more opportunities for a more vital, more diverse, and inclusive workforce, starting with the U.S and the continental Africa Markets.

Our Objectives

  1. To lead the way for creation, implementation, and promotion of an all-time reliable Healthcare & Business Directory covering the overall health industry beginning with the U.S., North America, and continental Africa (G.H.M. Media & Expo). This directory is a prime platform for brand promotion and networking for all sectors of the healthcare practice, dental practice, health/wellness, and the supply chain operations and management.
  2. Leverage the new Health Industry & Business Directory to establish collaborative partnerships with U.S. and global health industry manufacturers in order to: facilitate recruitment of global suppliers and regional distributors, logistic service partners and strategic market professionals as needed for the implementation and expansion of Global Healthcare Markets Depot (G.H.M. Depot).
  3. Support professional training and facilitate on-boarding for careers and entrepreneurship in healthcare practice, practice management, and in health industry supply chain operations and management.
  4. Implement community-driven outreach through robust social media and overall digital marketing and networking strategies including virtual and live events. This will be executed by commercial tools with a keen focus on innovation and the support of the Diversity Entrepreneurs Partnership Initiative (D.E.P.I.) across the U.S. and worldwide.

Our Strategic Partners

D.E.P.I. implementation and fundraising campaigns are funded in part by corporate sponsorship facilitated by: MedAlliesWorld® G.H.M. Media & Expo, G.H.M. Magazine, and G.H.M. Depot.

We are always looking to expand our network and invite global health industry’s stakeholders and service providers to join G.H.M. in their respective communities.

Each G.H.M.member/partner gains access to our robust advertising machinery, ultimately reaping a valuable short and long-term return on their investment. There is also the value-added benefit of contributing to the US-Assist and the Global-Assist Polyclinic Solutions (G.A.P.S.)
