Increasing supplier diversity1
Our Supplier Diversity Program aims to increase our partnerships with small business enterprises and businesses owned by people of underrepresented racial and ethnic groups, women, people with disabilities, veterans and members of the LGBTQ+ community. In 2022, our small business and diverse Tier I spend increased by 44% over the previous year. We also work with our suppliers to encourage diverse spend within their own supply chains. We formally launched our Tier II Supplier Diversity Program, which aims to identify, track and manage the diverse spend for our highest spend and strategic suppliers.
