Pride Global Supplier Diversity

We, together, will make a difference.

Our Mission

We strive to seek suppliers, vendors, and partners who share our vision for a more inclusive, equitable, and diverse world. By working with businesses owned and operated by professionals who represent historically oppressed ethnicities, genders, sexualities, and classes, we strengthen the communities in which we live at the same time we work to achieve sustainable growth and deliver value to our clients and stakeholders.

Leo Russell Headshot

At Pride Global, we truly believe that diversity is what makes us great. It’s part of our history, core to our mission as a company, and central to the legacy we hope to create. Our comprehensive DEI initiative, Decidedly Diverse, fully reflects Pride Global’s values, encompassing every aspect of our business and the industry in which it operates.

Among its own diverse components, Decidedly Diverse also includes our Supplier Diversity Program, which strives to ensure that our supplier base reflects the broad range of diversity among our stakeholders and clients. Designed to connect more minority-, women-, LGBTQ-, disabled-, and veteran-owned businesses to opportunities at Pride Global and our affiliates, the Supplier Diversity Program gives us much more than the opportunity to boost innovation and increase productivity. It promotes job creation in these underserved populations and has a profound effect on our diverse communities.

We also believe wholeheartedly in supplier development, concentrating our efforts around hosting forums to educate, mentor, and connect minority-owned suppliers with other corporate partners. Through efforts such as these, Pride Global can make a positive impact on the marketplace as a whole—and help our suppliers and ourselves realize sustainable business success.
