Is a business program that encourages the use of diverse-owned businesses such as: minority certified and historically underutilized business vendors, as suppliers.
For a diverse-owned business to be able to take advantage of Supplier Diversity & Procurement opportunities, it must become certified. The HCCL will help you to connect and find out if there is a certification that can benefit your company and get educated on the process. If you are a diverse supplier that wants to connect with corporate America, we can connect you with the appropriate certifying entity. There are numerous agencies to register with, but you should certify only with those certifying bodies that you want to do business with. You must identify if you want to do business with private sector, public sector, local or national.
