World Wide Technology was recently named to the San Francisco Business Times’ ranking of the ‘Top 20 Companies for Supplier Diversity in the Bay Area,’ recognizing local organizations with the highest overall supply chain diversity score.

Posted by the San Francisco Business Times on August 3, 2018:

We called upon Bay Area companies to send us their data regarding six determining factors of supplier diversity. The top 20 for supply chain diversity on our list are all members of at least one supply chain diversity certification organization on a national or regional level.

These organizations include:

In addition to the percentage spent with diverse suppliers and membership with certification organizations, the degree to which the company holds its prime suppliers responsible for diversity in its subcontracts was factored into an overall supply chain diversity score.

The Top Bay Area Companies for Supplier Diversity list was created in collaboration with the Western Regional Minority Supplier Development Council (WRMSDC), the Women’s Business Enterprise Council – Pacific (WBEC-Pacific), and the Golden Gate Business Association (GGBA), the Bay Area’s LGBT Chamber of Commerce.

To qualify for this list

Companies must have Bay Area operations in the nine-county Greater Bay Area. Each participating company was required to complete a brief online survey. Each question in the survey had its own score based upon our collective determination of its importance in developing and having the most diverse and inclusive supply chain. The total score was used to rank companies in the published list. There was no fee associated with participation in the survey or publication in the Top Bay Area Companies for Supplier Diversity list.
