13th Annual Supplier Diversity Star Awards
During a luncheon filled with stellar achievers, Delta honored minority vendors and Delta employees during its 13th Annual Supplier Diversity Star Awards Luncheon in Atlanta.
Delta Air Lines recognizes the critical role of small, minority, and women-owned businesses in the overall strength of the U.S. economy and ultimately to Delta stakeholders. To maximize returns to Delta customers, shareholders, employees, and the communities in which we operate, Delta seeks to utilize the products and services of qualified small, minority, and women-owned businesses.
We are committed to pro-actively identifying and building relationships with high quality small, minority, and women-owned business enterprises (MWBE's) and we encourage our 1st tier suppliers to do the same. Our mission is to deliver value by developing partnerships with qualified diverse suppliers. The key element of success lies in our ability to establish relationships with diverse suppliers that can provide quality products and services in a competitive and global environment.
“Delta has a long legacy of commitment to our customers, employees, shareholders and the communities we serve. Diversity is key to this commitment, and Delta is proud to embrace supplier diversity as crucial to delivering a world-class product for our customers worldwide.”
Richard Anderson, CEO
“Diversity is a part of our DNA. At Delta, we understand that fostering an inclusive work environment where all voices are heard makes us a better company. The inclusion of diversity-owned businesses in our supply chain is part of our legacy and longstanding commitment to embracing diversity and this gives us a competitive advantage in the marketplace. Our diverse suppliers' unique skills, fresh ideas, and work ethic help us deliver world-class products and services that are relevant to our richly diverse customer base.”
