SDI’s Supplier Diversity process maximizes procurement opportunities for minority-owned, women-owned and other diverse companies through our partnering initiatives for our strategic clients, and for our own procurement needs. A primary goal of the SDI Supplier & Business Diversity Program and process is to promote diversity within our own and our customers’ supply chains, by helping to create a positive economic impact in the very communities SDI Presence serves.
To inquire more about our initiatives, register to become a business partner or supplier or email firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions about SDI’s business and supplier diversity program. We seek to partner with the following categories:
