Evluma values diversity as a Core Value and it’s suppliers as an integral part of our sourcing strategy. We have developed a policy statement that is consistent with those values.
Our program allows us to enhance our supplier base for new ideas and high-quality goods and services, while enhancing economic growth opportunity. Evluma is dedicated to the strategy, purpose and goals of a strong Supplier Diversity Program. Continual efforts are being made to strive to enhance and build upon our program to identify small, local, minority, disadvantaged, women-owned, Hubzone, veteran-owned, and service disabled veteran-owned businesses as suppliers. It is clear that companies with global business vision understand the value of diversity relationships, not only with employees, but with customers, suppliers and investors.
Policy Statement: Evluma recognizes the importance of Small, Minority-owned and Women-owned Business Enterprises (SBE MWBE) to the economies of the nation, the state, and the communities it serves, as well as the corporation itself. Therefore, we are committed to pursuing business relationships with such enterprises and using innovative approaches designed to continually improve business opportunities.
Policy Program Objective: The diversity program objective is to promote and develop long-term relationships with small, local, women and minority-owned businesses and to create and sustain a culture that embraces supplier diversity to bring about change through creativity & inclusion.
