Supplier Diversity

We’re proud to work 
with diverse suppliers.

In 2016, we spent, directly and indirectly, $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 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. 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.
