Welcome to the Verizon Supplier Diversity Web Site
At Verizon, Diversity is about cultivating an inclusive organization that reflects the marketplace and the communities we serve. Our Supplier Diversity Program supports providing procurement opportunities to small businesses, small-disadvantaged businesses, minority, women, persons with disabilities, veterans and service disabled veteran owned business enterprises (Diverse Suppliers).
In 1984 Verizon established our Supplier Diversity program, and we have a long standing corporate commitment of including Diverse Suppliers in our supply chain. Our mission is to drive the growth of diverse spend and identify certified Diverse Suppliers, while building sustainable value-added business partnerships.
Verizon is a charter member of the Billion Dollar Roundtable, a coalition of 18 corporations that spend more than $1 billion each year with Diverse Suppliers. In 2011, we purchased nearly $4 billion in goods and services from Diverse Suppliers.
Verizon’s Small Business Portal was ranked for 4 quarters in a row one of the best Small Business Portals by providing effective online experiences for small businesses including business tips, newsworthy topics, and self-learn webinar training. www.business.verizon.net
Verizon recognizes that Diversity is critical to a strong business bottom line. Diverse Suppliers offer the innovative and value-added products and services we need in order to win in a competitive market. Doing business with Diverse Suppliers is not only the right thing to do, but it is smart business.
