Partnering with Local Businesses

Our Partner Inclusion Program promotes the economic development of diverse and inclusive local businesses around the world. We actively seek to bring diverse businesses into our network of suppliers, including minority-owned, women-owned, disabled-owned, veteran and service disabled veteran, or LGBT-owned companies. These local partnerships contribute to the social fabric of the communities where we operate.
