Corporate Supplier Diversity

Corporate Supplier Diversity: Programs & Initiatives To Grow Supplier Diversity


What is corporate supplier diversity?

Corporate supplier diversity refers to a business practice adopted by corporations to actively seek out and engage with suppliers owned or operated by individuals from underrepresented groups or small businesses. The goal of corporate supplier diversity is to foster economic inclusion and equal opportunities by providing small and diverse suppliers with access to corporate contracts and procurement opportunities.


What is a corporate supplier diversity program?

A corporate supplier diversity program is designed to encourage greater procurement opportunities to businesses owned by small and historically underrepresented and disadvantaged groups. The program aims to grow a wider pool of diverse suppliers contributing to economic development and social equity by creating jobs and business opportunities within underrepresented communities.


How do you build corporate supplier diversity?

Building corporate supplier diversity involves creating a program to implement strategies and practices that promote the inclusion of diverse suppliers in the procurement and supply chain processes of a company. Steps to building the program include setting goals, establishing and growing a diverse supplier database, creating plans for vendor outreach and education, developing a means by which to monitor, track and report on spending with small and diverse vendors, and building processes to continuously improve and enhance the program’s effectiveness. 


How do you set corporate supplier diversity goals?

A corporate supplier diversity program may set supplier diversity goals based on several factors, including leadership commitment, baseline assessment, and industry insights. A company typically establishes specific supplier diversity goals expressed as targets, such as a percentage of spend allocated to small and/or diverse suppliers, including categories such as minority-owned, women-owned, LGBTQ+-owned, veteran-owned, disabled-owned businesses or small businesses.
