Our Supplier Diversity team focuses on identifying opportunities for qualified diverse suppliers. Our supplier database accesses nearly 2,800 diverse-owned businesses that have registered with us and specialize in providing an array of IT products and services, including professional services, manufacturing, installation facilities, contingent labor and consulting. In 2020, SHI increased spend with certified small diverse suppliers for our direct and indirect spend by 10% from the previous year, totaling $533 million.
We understand that the viability and expansion of local businesses links to the success of small businesses and enterprises owned by women, minorities, veterans, members of the LGBTQ community, and people with disabilities. SHI’s supplier diversity practices identify these diverse-owned businesses committed to delivering the service, quality, and value that defines our IT service brand, and promotes the economic growth of the regional/local business communities we serve.
