The Benefits of Purchasing from Diversity Suppliers

WMBE- Women and Minority Business Enterprises.

Local, State, and Federal agencies all require buying from WMBE's and all have quotas and compliance mandates.

It's the right thing to do-over half of the Fortune 500 companies show the social responsibility of voluntary compliance as good business practice.

  • Owners and employees bring diverse skills and knowledge bases.
  • Solution minded without tunnel vision of “the way it’s always been done”.
  • Local, agile, and quick to react.
  • Niche businesses with narrower focus; therefore more productive.
  • More willing to work harder, longer, and go the extra mile to satisfy customers.
  • Bring innovation, integrity, creativity, flexibility, and capability of “turning on a dime”.
  • Decision makers easily accessible with quick answers.
