Supplier Diversity & Inclusion

We’re proud to work 
with diverse suppliers.

In 2018, we spent, directly and indirectly, over $5.15 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 minority, woman, disability-owned business enterprise, veteran, service-disabled veteran, or lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender owned business enterprises, and we expect our primes to do the same.


Our supplier diversity and inclusion commitment 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.” 
–Verizon CEO Hans Vestberg
