A Catalyst For Growth
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, by the year 2020, the minority population will represent 34.4% of the total U.S. population. As this population continues to grow, those corporations that are comfortable with cultural diversity and change will be the ones that thrive.
As supplier diversity continues to become a business solution, we understand that your goal is not only to achieve it, but also to maintain the level of quality you require of your suppliers. That’s why we offer programs for certified MBEs to assist their development; these capability and capacity building programs help them become better value-added suppliers to you. Your commitment today helps our economy thrive tomorrow.
