BUSINESS & SUPPLIER DIVERSITY
Since its formal launch in 2007, our CDW BD program has grown to become a cornerstone of CDW’s commitment to promoting diversity, equity and inclusion.
We want to express our gratitude to the partners who have collaborated closely with us, making the positive impact we're striving for a reality.
When our partners fully embrace the ethos of our business diversity program and work with us to implement it effectively, we witness tangible results. By strategically partnering with diverse and small businesses, we can consistently offer our customers the finest industry experience while also contributing to economic growth in diverse communities across the country. Our primary responsibility is to assist you as you work with customers to meet their supplier diversity requirements and equip them with the necessary tools to achieve their supplier diversity objectives.
Take our survey so we can better engage in a conversation about how we can collectively enhance this process.
CDW BUSINESS DIVERSITY STATUS
2022 saw $190 million in additional capital investment in CDW’s diverse suppliers, later to be at least in part realized as wealth gains by diverse owners.
Accessing revenues for diverse suppliers who are financially constrained led to an additional $830 million in revenue in 2022 for these suppliers. This value is from diverse suppliers making new hires who are projected to receive an increase in earnings that allows them to access in-home internet and computers.
Our program Supported nearly 32,000 jobs while creating 114 new jobs within those suppliers, providing jobs with greater digital skills within companies that are more likely to hire people with a diverse background.
In 2022, CDW’s Business Diversity program supported a projected $100 million in well-being derived from tech access.
The combination of accessing these two technologies is estimated to improve well-being by over $10,000 per person based on the average individual's perceived importance of the technologies.
