The Procurement Leadership Development Program (PLDP) is a two-year, non-rotational full-time hire program that is designed to fill our pipeline of future leaders. The program is based on a model of “Experience, Exposure, and Immersion.”

The PLDP curriculum includes both functional & leadership training, senior mentorship, formal leadership assessment & mentoring, numerous networking opportunities, and culminates in a year-long “capstone” project in support of a key business challenge.
