Business and Supplier Diversity at CDW

CDW’s deep experience, expertise and commitment to diversity excellence is critical to our ongoing success. We invest time building partnerships with our diverse suppliers and in working side-by-side with them to serve our customers.

A successful business diversity program seeks to provide diverse suppliers equal access to purchasing opportunities, but it also promotes diverse supplier participation reflective of the community and customers; optimizes your supply chain; creates revenue, jobs and wages; builds stronger communities; unleashes economic growth and raises the competition as a corporation needs to meet a diverse supplier spend.
