Supplier Diversity

We’re proud to work 
with diverse suppliers.

In 2016, we purchased $4.85 billion in goods and services from diverse suppliers.

We build long-term value for our customers by working with diverse suppliers. Verizon continuously seeks opportunities to work with minorities, women, veterans, service-disabled veterans, LGBT and disabled owned and operated businesses. We are proud to be a charter member of the Billion Dollar Roundtable, a coalition of companies that spend more than $1 billion each year with diverse suppliers.

Powering business growth and innovation

The story of Verizon and Pinnacle demonstrates that a diverse supply chain and a willingness to invest can not only be mutually beneficial, but business-changing.
