Welcome to American Water Supplier Diversity Initiative
The First Step To An Inclusive Partnership
American Water views Supplier Diversity as a valuable component to our company and the communities in which we live and serve. Supplier Diversity is a business imperative that provides a competitive advantage in all aspects of our business operations. As national members of the National Minority Supplier Development Council, Women Business Enterprise National Council, National Veteran Supplier Development Council, National Gay Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, and many local and regional advocacy organizations American Water takes its responsibility seriously. We partner with these organizations in our outreach strategy to ensure we are identifying certified and qualified diverse businesses across the spectrum of what we buy. Please take a few moments to view our website and gain insight on how you can partner with us in our commitment of an inclusive supply chain.
American Water’s Supplier Diversity initiative aligns with the company’s overall Inclusion, Diversity & Equity strategy. It is a critical component in maintaining our standards for excellence and essential to help keep life flowing for our customers.
Supplier diversity is both an American Water business imperative and best practice. As a component of our engagement and support of the communities that we serve, it is our privilege to pro-actively source, select and establish relationships with diverse businesses that include minority, Disabled, Women, LGBTQ+, Veteran, Service-Disabled Veteran Businesses.
