Supplier Diversity Program

Legacy Health’s Supplier Diversity Program shows our commitment to making supplier diversity part of our culture and the way we do business. We recognize the competitive advantage that supplier diversity brings to our organization. It is important to have suppliers that mirror our diverse workforce and the communities we serve.

Our Supplier Diversity Program will:

  • Proactively seek to procure products and services from diverse business enterprises
  • Increase the economic health of the communities we serve, thereby enabling healthier communities

Our program will assist diverse suppliers with bid and contract opportunities through a combination of:

  • Utilization: Integrating strategies to include competitive sourcing opportunities
  • Training and education: Offering training and support for diverse businesses on how to do business with Legacy Health
  • Minimizing Barriers to Entry: Reducing payment terms for qualifying vendors; ease of application to become a Legacy Health supplier
  • Tracking: Monitoring and reporting our progress toward achieving our supplier diversity targets with emphasis on continuous improvement
  • Acknowledgement: We recognize and track businesses that self-report or submit certification as a minority-owned indicator (e.g., minority, women, veteran, disability-owned enterprises, etc.)
  • Outreach: Seeking diverse suppliers through active involvement with minority development organizations and participation in various trade show events
