At Jefferson Bank, we believe our success is directly related to the vitality of the communities we serve. This means that the Bank seeks to provide an inclusive procurement process that provides the maximum opportunity for small and diverse businesses to participate as partners and suppliers of goods and services. Our Supplier Diversity Program helps to identify and develop relationships with certified small and diverse businesses that share our core values and commitment to providing exceptional customer service.
Our goal is to establish equal opportunities for deserving suppliers through our Supplier Diversity Program. Supplier diversity can contribute to the long-term economic sustainability of the communities that we are privileged to serve.
CRITERIA: A company business may qualify as a diverse supplier when it operates as a business entity which is at least 51% owned, operated and controlled by U.S. Citizens who are members of one of the following groups:
African Americans, Hispanic Americans, Native Americans, Asian Americans, and Women
Preferably your business should be certified by an official certification agency such as the National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC), National Women Business Owners Corporation (NWBOC), Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), and other applicable organizations. However, we will consider self-certified organizations as well. When submitting, please submit the criteria used in the determination of your certification.
