Supplier Diversity

What is supplier diversity?

ULG is dedicated to fostering supplier base diversity that reflects our broad client spectrum. Our 10,000+ diverse global suppliers have boosted our competitive edge and helped us better meet the needs of over 3,000 global customers—a number that’s growing every day.

Our dedication to diversity also means we’re committed to helping people realize their full potential. That commitment encompasses every area of our enterprise—employees, products, services, procurement practices and suppliers—which is why we look for suppliers who share our core values and mission.

We believe in creating opportunities for people to succeed, and we expect our suppliers to embrace those same values. Together, there’s no limit to what we can achieve.

Who qualifies as a Minority and Women Business Enterprise (MWBE) at ULG?

For United States-headquartered businesses, an MWBE is defined as a business that’s 51% or more owned, operated and managed by a woman or minority who is a citizen or permanent legal resident of the U.S.

ULG requires businesses that are categorized as MWBE to be self-certified or to be certified by an independent third party. During registration, all suppliers are required to select their business classification and notate MWBE, if appropriate.

To help meet our annual inclusion goals, ULG tracks, reports and sends an annual survey to all suppliers to ensure accurate recording of MWBE suppliers.
