Supplier Diversity Resource List

We are committed to increasing opportunities for African American-owned businesses in corporate supply chains.

Why Supplier Diversity Matters

In an effort to promote inclusion in the business world, we have compiled a comprehensive list of companies that are committed to supporting diverse suppliers. These companies not only contribute to a more equitable business environment but also gain access to a broader range of perspectives, skills, and expertise.
