WWT Supplier Diversity
WWT has developed the Supplier Diversity program from the same foundation as the rest of our business – our clearly defined core values, corporate vision and mission. These principles provide transparency and visibility into our business and define how we engage employees, partners and customers.
We believe investing in supplier diversity activities is a critical component of our company's success, which has allowed for overall growth in our small and diverse spending over the last several years.
To partner with small and diverse organizations that enable transformational business outcomes to drive inclusion and economic growth in our communities.
To mentor, educate, partner, and develop small and diverse business relationships one opportunity at a time.
At World Wide Technology, the importance of supplier diversity to our culture and business is reflected in our values and every aspect of our organization. We are committed to providing small, diverse suppliers (disabled-, LGBT-, minority-, veteran-, service-disabled veteran-, and women-owned businesses) and international business partners in our global communities equal access to direct and indirect business opportunities.
This program is designed to help train and integrate qualified and certified small, minority-, women- and disabled veteran-owned suppliers into provisioning products and services for our customers.
