What is Supplier Diversity?
Supplier Diversity is defined as a proactive business process that seeks to provide all suppliers equal access to purchasing opportunities. It promotes supplier participation reflective of the diverse business community and encourages economic development.
Baker Hughes, a world leader in oilfield services and products, is committed to supplier diversity. When Baker Hughes gives under-represented, minority-owned, women-owned, and disadvantaged businesses opportunities to compete in the marketplace, we obtain the products and services crucial to meeting our own customers’ diverse needs.
By promoting supplier diversity at Baker Hughes, we inspire vendors to develop innovative solutions and foster competition in the marketplace. Our suppliers benefit from additional credibility and status as approved Baker Hughes vendors.
Baker Hughes is committed to the economic growth and development of minority-owned, women-owned, disabled veteran-owned and small business enterprises (M/W/DV/SBEs) while recognizing and promoting the outstanding contributions made by small and diverse businesses to the economic health and diversity of communities where we operate.
