Light Source Mentoring Program

We help emerging suppliers grow and thrive through our Light Source Mentoring Program.

Man at coffee shop For over 25 years, KCP&L’s Supplier Diversity initiative has opened doors to minority, women-owned and small businesses to partner in successful endeavors. Light Source is another opportunity for us to guide these suppliers to a bright future through a program that seeks to nurture emerging minority and women-owned businesses in the community.
Light Source supplier participants are paired with a senior KCP&L leader and procurement advocate who provide business advice and counsel, connect them with training options, and help expand their network of contacts and opportunities. 
It’s a relationship that’s beneficial on both sides. The suppliers enhance their capabilities and skills, increase visibility in the community and gain a better understanding of bid and award procedures. And we have the opportunity to strengthen relationships with diverse suppliers, enhance our supplier resource base, and foster economic development and community improvement.
