At Premier®, we recognize that minority, women, veteran (veteran, disabled veteran, service-disabled veteran)-owned business enterprises (MWVBEs), lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer-owned business enterprises (LGBTQBEs) and small business enterprises (SBEs) are not always given the opportunity to compete in the same ways as their larger and widely known competitors can. With approximately 390 diverse contracts, as defined by the Small Business Administration, Premier’s supplier diversity program drives partnership with these suppliers who play a critical role in meeting the needs of our membership.
At stockd®, we support Premier’s supplier diversity program by highlighting the Group Buy offerings of our diversity supplier partners. Accordingly, throughout stockd, you will see the following color-coded designations indicating participation in Premier’s diversity program:
Minority-owned Business Enterprises
Women-owned Business Enterprises
Veteran-owned Business Enterprises
(including Veteran, Disabled Veteran and Service-Disabled Veteran)
