Employee Partners in Supplier Diversity

I make small purchases for my department. What can I do to help?

  • In order to create a more inclusive vendor community, those individuals making delegated small purchases must fully embrace the Supplier Diversity initiatives.
  • By force of habit, many departmental buyers tend to patronize the same vendors over and over again, without first verifying the availability of vendors.

Please remember to:

  • Make use of established term contracts with diverse businesses.
  • Be aware of diverse businesses and consider directing department-level purchases to those vendors.
  • Share information about new diverse supplier sources.


  • Did you know that you can search by diverse vendor when ordering supplies? It is simple and easy to do.
  • Simply check the search box while shopping.

Do you know of a company that would like to do business with us?

  • Please complete the Diversity Supplier recommendation form and submit it to the Business Office.
