Supplier Diversity Resource List

We are committed to empowering women-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.

Embracing diverse and small businesses as part of our supply chain is an important part of our work to expand access and equity in health, and to advance diversity and inclusion.

In alignment with our core values, Alight Solutions U.S. Supplier Diversity Program’s goal is to obtain a diverse and inclusive supply chain to guarantee equal opportunities to qualified suppliers. Diversity and inclusion have always been the principle that binds our core values together.

We recognize the structural barriers in our society that keep people from achieving their dreams, and we’re committed to doing our part to break down these barriers.

Our Supplier Diversity program is committed to the growth, development and well-being of underrepresented communities. This program increases the breadth of our supply base, creates competition and innovation, and more importantly represents our corporate values and business culture in meeting the expectations of our customers and aligning in best practices with our suppliers.

LISC has joined forces with Abbott to provide diverse small businesses with the tailored growth capital, loans and support they need to compete for contracts. Who is eligible?
