Q: What is considered a diverse business? Generally in the US, it means a business that is at least 51% owned by one or more individuals of a group (woman, veteran, disabled, LGBTQ, etc) or ethnicity (Black, Asian, Latinx, Native American, etc).
Q: Do I need a certification or designation? Not always, but it helps for company programs that seek to broaden their supplier diversification. Some programs require certifications.
Q: How do I become certified? There are several companies that offer certification. Some are general, some are category-specific. Research the programs and the potential for increased business before committing to a program because they can be lengthy and expensive.
