MSI maintains a formal Supplier Diversity Policy & Program and has partnerships with a broad array of suppliers representing Small Businesses, Small Disadvantaged Businesses, Women-owned Small Businesses, Veteran-owned Small Businesses, and Minority and Women Business Enterprises. We are committed to pursuing business relationships with such enterprises and implement innovative approaches to continually improving these business opportunities. MSI’s supplier diversity objectives are to:
- Actively and routinely seek out qualified minority-owned and women-owned business enterprises that can provide competitive and high-quality services in our industry
- Encourage participation and support of supplier diversity by major suppliers to MSI who are not minority-owned or women-owned businesses
- Seek out opportunities to assist in the development and competitiveness of MWBEs through instruction, mentoring, and other outreach activities
MSI’s supplier diversity initiatives are overseen by the vice president of Strategic Sourcing and are supported through a corporate-wide commitment to the implementation of procurement and management procedures that will enhance these opportunities.
