Duke University and Duke University Health System strives to reflect and embrace the diversity of our community. Procurement and Supply Chain Management actively pursues a diverse supplier base.
Recognizing that inequity has resulted in systemic barriers, Duke has a responsibility to address these barriers and their perpetuation. We meet this responsibility by taking an enterprising role in order to afford potential vendors equal opportunity and equal access. Emphasis on supplier diversity adds cultural, operational, and economic value to Duke. Drawing on a broad pool of suppliers, the Duke community builds relationships with historically underutilized business sectors, encourages effective, competitive bidding, and stimulates the local economy.
We are proud to approach our impact on our intertwined community and economy with an inclusive glaze and collaborative spirit.
