In her role as Executive Director of Supplier Diversity, Knapik ensures CVS Health’s supply chain is secure, sustainable and diverse.
Up until 15 years ago, most of Knapik’s career was spent as IT Program Manager at CVS Health. Then a role presented itself in enterprise procurement.
“My IT background came forward, but I quickly transitioned into more of a procurement operations role, where I had categories like wireless wireline, travel, credit card contingent labour store supplies and print operations.”
Knapik also inherited CVS Health’s supplier diversity programme, which became something Knapik was most passionate about.
CVS Health works with several diverse and/or small vendors, including WEi, Gardner Resource Consulting Group and Universal Printing Company.
“WEi is a technology reseller and innovator, which has brought forward innovative solutions to the table, primarily - but not exclusively - for our retail business. When you walk up into the pharmacy, if the pharmacist is filling in the prescription and you know that the computer device was co-developed with WEi. They're great innovators!”
The Gardner Resource Consulting Group is an IT contingent Labour IT and digital contingent labour partner, which provides diverse talent and resources to support CVS Health’s IT and digital needs.
