Supplier Diversity

Our Commitment

Diversity and inclusion can be seen in everything we do at Day & Zimmermann (D&Z), from our diverse customers to our diverse employees and our diverse suppliers. D&Z suppliers support a diverse group of businesses and industries across the globe and that’s why “We do what we say.®” by incorporating our D&Z value of diversity into our supplier selection criteria.

We are committed to partnering with innovative and competitive small, HUB Zone, veteran-owned, LGBT-owned, minority and women-owned businesses to make sure the needs of our customers are met. To ensure that diverse businesses are afforded maximum opportunity to participate in our competitive procurement processes, D&Z commits to diverse sourcing efforts.  We offer an online supplier registration database as well as networking and matchmaking events country-wide. We also actively partner with our customers’ supplier diversity and supply chain representatives to identify and engage highly qualified diverse suppliers who can help us  deliver on our promises.

Partnering with diverse suppliers helps us drive innovative solutions - and by achieving cost savings through increased competition and innovation we can increase value to our customers and drive economic growth in the communities we serve.

Our continued commitment to supplier diversity will strengthen us, our customers and the diverse communities we serve.
