Creating economic empowerment through diversity & inclusion

We create economic opportunities by procuring products and services from small businesses and from minority-, women-, veteran-, veteran disabled-, service disabled, disability-, and lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT)-owned business enterprises. As a member of the Billion Dollar Roundtable, we’ve committed to spending $4.4 billion by 2030 and have developed an enterprise-level strategy to meet our goals.
