Supplier Diversity Program

As a Women-Owned Business, we believe in providing opportunities to all diverse suppliers because seeking and contracting with diverse suppliers increases sustainability, promotes innovation, and supports our local communities. Building a diverse and inclusive workforce is part of our first core value: Integrity, and this commitment extends to our vendors and subcontractors as we respond to community needs.

Our supplier diversity policy is to attain practicable spending levels with a variety of suppliers. The following categories are recognized as diverse suppliers:

  • Minority-owned
  • Woman-owned
  • Veteran-owned (including disabled veteran-owned)
  • Disability-owned
  • HUB Zone
  • LGBTQ+-owned
  • SmallBusiness

While not mandatory, we encourage our suppliers to get a third-party certification through a national certifying entity such as the National Minority Supplier Development Council,Women’s Business Enterprise National Council, National LGBT Chamber of Commerce, and Disability:IN. In addition, we recognize any city’s, state’s, and municipality’s certification processes and other private and government certifying agencies.
