Minority, woman and small-owned businesses

We believe that a diverse and multicultural supply chain is a source of innovation, and that contractor diversity promotes inclusiveness that benefits the consumers we serve.

We are dedicated to working with diverse business owners—particularly minorities, women and small businesses—and we welcome feedback about how we're doing.
