DIVERSITY IS GOOD FOR BUSINESS. ARE YOU LETTING LARGE BUYERS KNOW YOU ARE CERTIFIED?

A common misconception about supplier diversity programs is that they’re like social programs designed to “level the playing field” for disadvantaged business owners, who may not have the connections of more established industry players. While bridging this access gap is part of the federal government’s mandate to increase its own supplier diversity, that doesn’t explain why supplier diversity initiatives have caught on in such a big way with Fortune 2000 companies and major nonprofits.

Supplier diversity programs have become so popular because, on average, they add about $3.6 million to an organization’s bottom line for every $1 million spent on procurement.

Diversity programs also help companies…

If you’re a certified Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) owner, it makes good business sense to promote your DBE certification as part of your comprehensive marketing strategy.

DON’T HAVE A DBE CERTIFICATION, BUT THINK YOU MIGHT QUALIFY FOR ONE?

Businesses that are at least 51 percent owned by a “disadvantaged” member of the population are eligible for Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE) certification. A “disadvantaged” person can be a woman, minority, veteran, a person with a disability, or a person with some other kind of social or economic disadvantage. Businesses can also be considered disadvantaged because of their size or location.
