Supplier diversity

We are working to create jobs and increase economic opportunities for the people and local businesses in the communities we serve. We source products from diverse, women-owned and small businesses.

Our program

Our Supplier Diversity team partners with our business units to integrate supplier diversity into procurement activities, and with national organizations to identify and develop diverse businesses.

We are always seeking new partners, and invite diverse-owned certified businesses to learn more about CVS Health, and to register your company profile online to be considered for future opportunities.

We expand our supplier network by working closely with nationally recognized diversity organizations and communicating with diverse suppliers about building their businesses.

Connecting, engaging, and networking with diverse suppliers, advocacy organizations, and corporate partners is a key tenet of our supplier diversity program.

In 2020, we will be taking innovative approaches to maintain our engagement, utilizing virtual engagements to ensure the success of each of our programs.
