Supplier Diversity Policy
Supplier Diversity Policy Statement
At City of Hope, diversity of skills, experience and cultural background are essential ingredients to providing compassionate patient care, achieving innovative discoveries and advancing vital education focused on eliminating cancer, diabetes and other life-threatening diseases in all our communities. We are dedicated to fostering a community that embraces diversity; this is reflected in City of Hope’s supplier diversity policy which affirms that certified diverse and small suppliers have the opportunity, access and invitation to participate in proposals designed to engage suppliers.
City of Hope recognizes the need for and the benefits of sourcing and stimulating the growth of minority, women, veteran, disabled veteran and LGBTQ+-owned, and historically underutilized, business enterprises, as well as small businesses. We, therefore, have adopted a proactive policy of promoting, engaging and providing equal access to business opportunities with diverse suppliers. We are committed to ensuring all transactions are procured through a fair and open competitive environment. To support this commitment, City of Hope actively collaborates with diverse suppliers to foster healthy and fair business relations.
City of Hope is committed to diversity and strives to hire, develop and retain a workforce and supply base that reflects the community that we serve and in which we work. We require those providing products and services to City of Hope to prohibit discrimination on the basis of any protected characteristic in accordance with applicable laws, and we encourage them to promote diversity, including providing opportunities to diverse suppliers, as we do to support our important goal.
