We’re focused on building a
supply chain as diverse as
the communities we serve.
Over $5 billion spent with diverse suppliers in 2018.
Supplier Diversity and inclusion is a business imperative at Verizon. In 2018 alone we spent, directly and indirectly, over $5.15 billion in goods and services with diverse suppliers – minority, women, veteran, service-disabled veteran, LGBT, and disability owned businesses.
We are committed to promoting and including diverse businesses in our supply chain and believe that diverse businesses provide us with the greatest opportunity to offer innovative, high quality, and cost-effective business solutions for our customers.
Our commitment to supplier diversity and inclusion starts at the top.
“Providing the best service on the best network means working with a diverse set of suppliers. Verizon is committed to supplier diversity and economic inclusion because it ensures our customers have access to superior service and experience. A diverse and inclusive supply chain is not only the right thing to do, but it’s smart business.”
