Council for Supplier Diversity

With a goal to promote economic development in under-represented communities, the Council for Supplier Diversity facilitates business opportunities and market share growth for minority, woman, and service-disabled veteran businesses.  Services provided to member corporations include supplier diversity program development, verification of diverse supplier status, need-specific supplier identification and connections, community relations support, and professional development opportunities.  On the supplier side, the Council provides certification services, a range of opportunities to connect with corporate buyers, and initiatives designed to help businesses build capacity.  To foster future diverse suppliers, the Council also runs a Young Entrepreneur Academy focused on teaching youth from under-served communities how to identify, plan, and start their own businesses.
