Lenovo recognizes the importance of supplier diversity and is committed to ensuring that it is an integral part of our strategic sourcing and procurement processes. We believe that the success of the organization and society depends on enabling Diverse Business Enterprises (DBE) to share in economic growth. Our commitment is to maximize DBE participation through the development of mutually beneficial business relationships with these firms.
Our Supplier Diversity Program helps our business by influencing and increasing our customer base, promoting innovation, and protecting sales. We also recognize that it supports diverse suppliers by creating inclusive and decent employment for all, which enables sustainable economic growth and produces leaders within our communities.
In the U.S., Lenovo partners with a variety of national and regional organizations such as the National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC), the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce (UHSCC), as well as other local Chambers of Commerce. Though these organizations, Lenovo also participates in national, regional, and local events aimed at promoting and creating opportunities for diverse suppliers.
