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 disability owned and operated businesses. We are a proud charter member of the Billion Dollar Roundtable, a coalition of companies that spends more than $1 billion each year with diverse suppliers.

For Diverse Suppliers

Diverse suppliers are one of Verizon's most valuable resources. If you are diverse supplier, make sure that you meet our Supplier Requirements and register in our portal.
