Supplier diversity is much more than a policy at Walgreens. It is an integrated business practice. We proactively procure relevant products and services from diverse owned and small businesses that mirror the diversity of the communities in which we operate.
Moreover, Walgreens commitment to supplier diversity fosters equal access to opportunity, reflecting our foundational principles of fairness, respect and equality. To meet that commitment, we:
Walgreens is searching for vendors who offer a variety of goods and services. From health and wellness items to household staples and daily needs, the company wants to present customers and patients with the best experience and products.
An experienced and professional supplier diversity team collaborates with Walgreens executives and managers on meeting goals, and mentors diverse and small businesses to enhance preparedness, competitiveness, and alignment of their strengths with Walgreens stringent standards of excellence and quality.
Walgreens conducts supplier outreach in collaboration with the Women's Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), the National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC) and other affiliate organizations that support, advocate for and/or help certify diverse and small business suppliers.
Walgreens supplier diversity initiative continues a proud legacy of supporting growth of entrepreneurship, community development and job creation. Learn more about how to become a vendor with Walgreens on SupplierNet. Here's how to register as a vendor.
