Supplier Diversity Programs
We have various programs, some in conjunction with our Partner Organizations, to help primes improve their 2nd tier programs; to help small businesses get into the 2nd tier role; and to help small businesses expand their capacity to the extent of their capabilities.
Capacity Building Programs
Capacity building is among the biggest needs in the supplier diversity world. We are working with our partner organizations to develop programs that will help bring promising M/WBEs to the next level by helping them increase their capabilities. Sometimes that means developing a specific program. Sometimes that means pointing them toward existing programs that help create a path for growth.
We lean heavily on collaboration with external partners to help us identify candidates for specific capacity building programs and for participation in new programs developed in response to changing market requirements.
