The Council’s mission is to:
Continuously enhance and expand our program offerings to create high level value for all stakeholders (Corporate Members and MBEs);
Certify and develop ethnic-minority business enterprises to build a sustainable diverse supply chain;
Provide platform to connect suppliers with private and public sector procurement opportunities; and
Advocate for the growth and development of our Corporate Member and MBE business relationships
To be the pre-eminent go-to organization for supplier diversity, incorporating best practices to certify, develop, and mentor ethnic-minority owned businesses and support the efforts of our corporate membership to build a more ethnically diverse and sustainable supply chain.
The Council actively seeks viable ethnic minority suppliers for procurement opportunities with its membership. The Council enables corporate members to diversify their base of competitive suppliers and strengthen the corporate supply chain. This “linkage process” increases opportunities for council-certified suppliers and helps facilitate the employment and economic development of our communities.
