Supplier Diversity

Premier's industry-leading supplier diversity initiative integrates inclusive diversity practices into group purchasing contracting, allowing Premier members to support minority, woman, veteran, and small business suppliers through Premier agreements.

Premier also provides members tools and resources to implement their own supplier diversity initiatives. For instance, Summa Health System in Akron, Ohio, and Premier presented a first-of-its-kind regional supplier diversity fair in spring 2006. For more information, click here (.pdf).
