We Stand For … Expanding Business Opportunities
We actively create and expand opportunities for diverse-owned businesses in our supply chain. Diverse suppliers bring value to our company, not just through their offerings, but also by creating opportunities for economic growth in our communities. Building these partnerships helps us address our company’s evolving needs, while also passing along the benefits of our success to others.
Each year, Comcast NBCUniversal participates in dozens of outreach events and capacity building activities to grow our Supplier Diversity pipeline. We actively partner with organizations that support diverse suppliers, including: the Billion Dollar Roundtable, National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC), Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), and national Chambers of Commerce. These partnerships have proven to be key to the success of our Supplier Diversity program.
We’re committed to partnering with diverse vendors (Tier I) and subcontractors (Tier II), which includes women-owned business enterprises (WBE) and minority-owned business enterprises (MBE), as well as veteran-, LGBTQ-, and disability-owned businesses. We have spent more than $16 billion with diverse Tier I and Tier II suppliers since YE 2010, including more than $4 billion in 2017 alone.
Helping Diverse Suppliers Thrive
Our Suppliers (Tier I)
We are continuously expanding opportunities for new businesses to partner with us, and this is an important part of having our commitment to Diversity & Inclusion (D&I) extend beyond our business to benefit others.
Our Subcontractors (Tier II)
We began tracking our spend with diverse Tier II suppliers in 2012, and we're proud to have spent more than $1.8 billion since.
