What is a Diversity Supplier?

August 23, 2022

A diverse supplier is a business that is at least 51% owned and operated by an individual or group that is part of a traditionally underrepresented or underserved group. This includes small, women-, minority- LGBTQ-, owners with disabilities, and veteran-owned businesses.
