IBM’s supplier diversity program expands purchasing opportunities for businesses owned and operated by minorities, women, gay and lesbian and veteran owned and operated businesses. This program increases opportunities for nonprofit organizations that employ people with disabilities and for small businesses located in historically underutilized business zones (HUB Zones). IBM’s commitment to supplier diversity is an initiative pursued with vigilance and zeal; it is part of IBM’s heritage, business plan, and future.
