Our Commitment to Supplier Diversity

We make efforts to ensure fairness in our procurement processes and, as a result, partner with many diverse suppliers across our supply chain. Leveraging the best practices of leading organizations, we have established documented processes that allow us to identify, qualify and partner with companies that share our commitment to the long-term growth and development of diverse suppliers.

Our spend with certified diverse suppliers, inclusive of ethnic minorities, women, veterans and disabled suppliers, exceeded 8 percent of our procurement spend in 2013. 

We partner with three key third-party certification entities to validate the ownership, operation and control of our diverse business partners and have been a corporate member of each of these organizations for more than 10 years:






National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC)

Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC)

National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC)

We also prioritize certification by federal, state and local government agencies. We will continue to enhance our supplier diversity processes to be acknowledged as a leader within our industry.
