At Motorola Mobility, we recognize that supplier diversity promotes innovation and creativity; shows our commitment to diverse communities who buy our products; and allow us to meet our internal supplier diversity goals and the needs of customers and consumers around the world. By ensuring that certified diverse suppliers are included in our supplier selection process, our Supplier Diversity Program works to increase business that is awarded to diverse suppliers.
The businesses that we include in this program are:
- Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual or Transgendered Business Enterprises
- Minority Business Enterprises
- Service-disabled or Disabled Veteran-owned Small Businesses Enterprises
- Small Businesses Enterprises
- Small, Disadvantaged Businesses Enterprises
- Veteran-owned Small Businesses Enterprises
- Women Business Enterprises
In 2012, our U.S. tier-one supply chain spend goal with certified diverse suppliers was eight percent. We missed this goal by two percent - spending approximately six percent of total U.S. procurement spend with certified diverse suppliers. These businesses supplied us with products and services such as accessories, computer hardware and software, consulting, engineering, financial services, marketing, peripherals and system integration services.
Pending an upcoming divestiture of our Home business in 2013, our U.S. tier-one supply chain goal is to spend five percent with certified diverse suppliers.
Throughout 2013, Motorola Mobility may participate in national and regional diversity events to meet with certified diverse suppliers. To be considered for future opportunities, contact our supplier diversity team by email at firstname.lastname@example.org. Suppliers are encouraged to provide a brief explanation of their products or services. Please note - contacting Motorola Mobility does not guarantee a meeting or a contract. Suppliers will be contacted only if a procurement opportunity is determined. If a meeting is scheduled with our Procurement team, suppliers should also be prepared to discuss their agility, technical know-how, cost competitiveness and lead time flexibility.
