Verizon is committed to seeking opportunities to work with minorities, women, service-disabled veteran-owned business enterprises, and small businesses.
Our mission and vision
Verizon recognizes that diversity is critical to a strong business bottom line. Our goal is to identify qualified, certified diverse suppliers and drive the growth of diverse spend, while building sustainable value-added partnerships. While we understand how supplier diversity is essential for our business success, we also appreciate how critical our business is for their success.
Verizon is a charter member of the Billion Dollar Roundtable, a coalition of corporations that spend more than $1 billion each year with diverse suppliers.
"Verizon is committed to continuously identifying and expanding effective business partnerships with Diverse Suppliers. These mutually beneficial relationships will allow us to provide superior service and excellent communications experiences for our customers, while broadening our reach in the competitive marketplace."
- Lowell C. McAdam, Chairman and CEO, Verizon
