We build and develop a global group of suppliers that reflects the diversity of our patients and customers, and our commitment to inclusion. The Supplier Diversity Program is designed to ensure that businesses of diverse backgrounds and ownership have the opportunity to become valued suppliers.
Since starting our Supplier Diversity Program in 1998, our total spending with small businesses and diverse-owned suppliers has been over one billion dollars annually.
