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 understand that doing business with a large company like ours can be challenging, so we’ve developed resources to help you succeed, including an executive learning series for diverse suppliers.

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.

Becoming certified as a diverse supplier is one of the most important things your company can do to prepare to do business with CVS Health.
