Supplier Diversity: Core to Our Business Continuity

A message from Chief Procurement Officer Peter Kiriacoulacos.

For nearly a decade, Comcast and NBCUniversal’s uniquely designed Supplier Diversity Programs have focused on direct business-to-business outreach and partnership with advocacy organizations that help build capacity for, and make connections, with diverse vendors. 

Comcast NBCUniversal’s supplier diversity program is designed to promote, increase, and improve the participation of diverse businesses within our corporate supply chain — including companies owned by women, people of color, veterans, individuals with disabilities, and lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, and queer individuals.

Established and emerging suppliers whose products or services will help our company improve daily operations and quality while reducing costs are encouraged to register within our portal

As Chief Procurement Officer, my organization leads the Supplier Diversity Programs at Comcast and NBCUniversal and is responsible for developing and guiding strategies to help achieve commercial synergies. The benefits of supplier diversity are reciprocal. Diversity within our supply chain gives our company a competitive edge, helps inspire innovation and offers us invaluable insights into the interests and needs of our customers.
