Supplier Diversity



Similar to the diversity among our Associate population, we also aim to have a diverse supplier base. We proactively seek out relationships with domestic suppliers who represent many cultures, ethnicities and experiences.

Our U.S. supplier diversity program, which is managed by our Global Sourcing and Procurement group, is dedicated to sourcing services and goods not sold in our stores (not-for-resale) from a diverse supplier group. Since the program’s inception in 1992, we have continued to be on the lookout for innovative ways to expand our supplier network. In recent years, we broadened the scope of our program to include businesses owned by persons with disabilities as well as Veteran-owned businesses. Currently, we are benchmarking ourselves against best practices set by the National Minority Supplier Development Council to determine areas in which we might further enhance our program.
