Perhaps you’re a prime vendor needing to meet the federal government’s contractual requirements regarding supplier diversity. Maybe your Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) priorities include supporting more minority-owned and other traditionally underrepresented enterprises. Perhaps you are looking for the personal touch that comes with a business relationship with a regional supplier - but with the pricing and fulfillment of a national enterprise program.
Whatever the reason you want or need to broaden your pool of diverse suppliers, Diversity Products will help you meet your procurement diversity and inclusion goals quickly and cost-effectively.

Even in the high-tech 21st century, many traditional office supplies are must-haves. Pens, pencils, paper clips, and Post-it® notes. Binders, legal pads, manila file folders—and don’t forget the color-coded labels. Staplers and scissors, rubber bands and rubber erasers. Number 10 envelopes and inter-office envelopes. Whiteboards and dry erase markers. Box cutters, bubble wrap, and packing tape. Once you start taking stock of everything your staff needs, you’ll realize there’s simply no shortage of chances to increase procurement diversity spend when sourcing office supplies.
Choosing who keeps your workplace clean could be a major opportunity for increasing diversity spend. Women own more than two-thirds of janitorial service firms. More than half of the firms are minority-owned. Veteran-owned firms also make up a significant part of the sector. And don’t overlook from whom you source everyday cleaning supplies: brooms and dustpans, an office vacuum cleaner, even monitor wipes and cans of compressed air. From trash cans and liners to whole teams keeping your workspace spick and span, Diversity Products offer solutions.
A well-stocked breakroom can make a major positive contribution to your corporate culture. It’s more than a spot for the coffee pot and watercooler. It’s a place for people to clear their heads and connect with co-workers face to face—a brief but welcome respite from virtual meetings and emails. Diversity Products can meet all your breakroom needs, from the appliances—not only the coffee pot and watercooler, but also a mini-fridge and microwave oven—to the tea bags, coffee beans or ground coffee, milk, sugar, snacks, and cups, utensils, and plates.
We’re all still waiting for the long-promised “paperless office” to arrive. Until it does, you can procure your paper, as well as toner and ink cartridges for your office’s printers and photocopiers, from Diversity Products. Whether your workplace uses a little or a lot, buying paper and toner from Diversity Products can make a big impact on your procurement diversity spend. They have the paper and ink supply solutions you need. (Unfortunately, clearing paper jams is still up to you!)
Your team spends many hours at the office. Investing in quality, durable, comfortable furniture is also a key investment in your people’s satisfaction and productivity. Make sure they have office furniture that encourages collaboration and efficiency, as well as fixtures and furnishings that impress visitors with your professionalism. Desks and chairs, cubicles, conference tables, filing cabinets, and more—your furnishings add up to make a big difference in not only the look of your office space but also its smooth operation, not to mention your procurement diversity spend.
Computers on desks may be the most visible technology in your workplace, but they’re far from the only tech you need. Reliable audio and video communications networks, cloud-based computing and data storage, dependable Wi-Fi service, and robust cybersecurity are all essential for 21st-century organizations’ efficiency and productivity. Diversity Products has the technological solutions you need—everything from monitors and tower units or all-in-one desktops to routers, power strips, projectors, office phone systems, and even cloud-based storage and cyber threat detection services.
Your own printers and copiers likely aren’t able to handle all of your business’s printing needs. Turn to Diversity Products to handle your bigger, complex, or recurring print jobs. Whether you need updated letterhead stationery and business cards, are preparing annual reports for the shareholders, or want to mail brochures and catalogs to your customers, sourcing your print jobs to the right companies can not only ensure you get the professional results you want but also significantly boost your diversity spend.

PPE, safety supplies and protective equipment keep office and work sites secure. They help companies ensure full compliance with safety regulations. Protective clothing, helmets, goggles, and other safety gear help guard employees from injury or infection. Safety signs warn employees and others of potential hazards, alert workers to the location of safety equipment and exit routes, and offer safety-related instructions in a concise and attention-getting format. Items such as masks and sanitizing products help to maintain clean working environments and protect your employees.
