Supplier Diversity

As one of the country’s largest health care companies, our supply chain has a significant impact on communities and small businesses. That’s why CVS Health is continually improving and enhancing our Supplier Diversity Program.

Through this program, we encourage diverse-owned businesses to register with us as a diverse supplier. Managers throughout CVS Health are asked to consider using these diverse suppliers when they’re procuring goods and services. We even encourage our large suppliers to consider diverse suppliers as well.

We team up with many national partners who connect us to potential diverse suppliers, including:  

  • National Minority Supplier Development Council
  • Women’s Business Enterprise National Council
  • United States Hispanic Chamber of Commerce
  • National Gay and Lesbian Chamber of Commerce

In addition, our Diverse Retail Pharmacy Program encourages diverse-owned, independent retail pharmacies to become certified diverse-business enterprises, so they can expand and establish potential business opportunities with CVS Health.
