    Lamont Robinson

    Lamont Robinson was born in Chicago, Illinois. He attended Lower Merion High School in Ardmore, Pennsylvania through the A Better Chance college preparatory program. He then returned to Illinois to attend Lake Forest College, in Lake Forest, Illinois. After graduating from LFC, he went on to work for the Lake County Forest Preserves while obtaining his MBA from Keller Graduate School of Management. After receiving his MBA, he moved on to work for Abbott Laboratories in 2000 as a Senior Purchasing Agent. In 2004, Lamont was part of Abbott’s spin-off, Hospira, as a
    Senior Purchasing Agent and Small Business Liaison Officer.


    In September 2004, Lamont joined Cardinal Health as the Corporate Director of Supplier Diversity where he was responsible for assisting Group Purchasing Organizations with their supplier diversity programs. He then relocated from Illinois to Texas in 2007 to join VHA, Inc. (a national healthcare alliance), to create its supplier diversity program as their Director of Business Development and Supplier Diversity. In 2009, he was promoted as the Senior Director of Supplier Diversity for Novation. At Novation, Lamont directly oversaw the supplier diversity programs for Novation, VHA, and Provista (Novation’s sister company), as well as provided support to UHC. Lamont was then recruited and accepted the position as Vice President of Supplier Diversity for Nielsen, where he served from 2012 to 2018.


    Lamont has been a leader in supplier diversity for the past 14 years after receiving a plethora of national awards and acknowledgments for every supplier diversity program he oversaw. His most treasured achievement is receiving the 2010 Corris Boyd Leadership and Diversity award from the Federation of American Hospitals, which recognizes an individual or company that has made an outstanding contribution in fostering leadership and workplace diversity in the health care industry. 

    Lamont initially launched RLC in 2012 but focused more on its growth in 2017 when he was awarded a subcontracting opportunity to launch the supplier diversity program for a large New Jersey-based health system. RLC is a minority-owned and certified diverse firm that specializes in launching exemplary supplier diversity programs, connecting diverse suppliers to procurement opportunities while developing those organizations, assisting professional athletes and entertainers with transitioning into business ownership through the usage of diversity, and assisting clients with responding to community pressures pertaining to diversity.


    In 2014, Lamont authored his autobiography “TransformNational: Journey of a Bastard” which details his personal experiences in overcoming challenges on Chicago’s violent West Side to achieve success.

  • Implicit or Unconscious Bias - Disrupting Everyday Bias

    Contains 3 Component(s), Includes Credits Includes a Live Web Event on 11/30/2021 at 1:00 PM (CST)

    Implicit or unconscious bias refers to unintentional stereotypes and judgments (either positive or negative) we have toward certain groups of people, based on categories such as gender, race, class, interests they have, and a lot more. Every person has unconscious bias—it’s the way the human brain processes and categorizes vast amounts of information. Research from neurologist Sigmund Freud states that unconscious thoughts have the largest influences on human behavior. However, if left unchecked, unconscious biases can lead to unfair or discriminatory behavior with negative consequences. An understanding of unconscious bias is an invitation to a new level of engagement about diversity issues. Sponsored by Kaeser & Blair

  • Introduction to ASTM’s New Face Mask Standard

    Contains 4 Component(s), Includes Credits Recorded On: 04/06/2021

    This webinar will explain the details of the new ASTM Standard for Barrier Face Coverings. For suppliers, it will provide a basis to decide whether or not to have their cloth face coverings tested to the new ASTM standard. For distributors, it will provide a basis to know if they should be seeking ASTM 3502-21 compliant face coverings for their customers, and what the ratings mean. Background As face coverings have become first-line protection for everyone since the beginning of the COVID pandemic, consumers have not had an objective, scientific and standard way to know how protective one type of face covering is versus another. During the past several months, a committee of mask and respirator experts has been collaborating with CDC experts to develop such a standard. Working within ASTM, the standards development organization, the committee published the first version of its standard on February 17. The standard is titled, ASTM F3502-21 Standard Specification for Barrier Face Coverings and is available at no charge during the pandemic from ASTM. This new standard establishes minimum care, design, labeling, and performance requirements for reusable barrier face coverings such as those sold in the promotional industry. Rick Brenner, MAS+, of Product Safety Advisors will moderate the webinar, which will be presented by Jeffrey Stull. Mr. Stull is a world-renown expert in respirators of all types. Stull has served as co-chair of the ASTM F23-65 committee that developed the standard.
