Diversity in the Marketplace
At Fifth Third, we understand that a diverse supply chain represents better business. It's about offering excellent financial solutions and driving innovation for the benefit of our customers, shareholders, employees and communities. Our supplier diversity program was developed to encourage certified minority-, women-, veteran-, persons with disabilities-, and LGBT+ -owned small businesses to compete in contracting opportunities.
In support of supplier diversity, we strive to:
- Increase spend with diverse suppliers.
- Increase our number of diverse suppliers, and
- Increase diverse supplier penetration in challenging spend categories.
