Supplier Diversity

We maintain a policy and commitment to support small, certified minority-owned and certified women-owned businesses and to develop an advanced supplier diversity process that is fully integrated into our company culture. Our supplier list reflects our customer base and offers a wide range of perspectives and capabilities. We recognize that diverse suppliers play a key role in helping us achieve our goals as an organization. Read more about our Diversity and Inclusion Plan.

Register as a Diverse Supplier and/or update your company's information and profile online.

In 2014 we held an event for minority and women-owned businesses to share how to bid on library and building projects. Please click here for the presentation or here for the handout that was provided.

Our Diversity and Inclusion program represents our commitment to a process that provides opportunities for all. View reports that track the diversity of our construction workforce:
