Our emphasis on diversity, equity, and inclusion extends to the partnerships we develop with local suppliers. Through outreach, mentorship, and advocacy we work with small businesses, minority-owned, and women-owned businesses—creating jobs and opportunities in the communities where we work coast to coast.
EXTENDING OUR INCLUSION COMMITMENT
INDUSTRY-LEADING SUPPLIER DIVERSITY PROGRAMS
Supplier diversity is an enterprise initiative throughout Centuri’s family of companies. As part of this initiative, we are an active member of the National Minority Supplier Diversity Council and host multiple supplier networking and opportunities events, including our annual Centuri Supply Chain & Diversity Summit.
Here are two examples of how we are leading the way among our industry peers while supporting the diversity programs of our clients.
Established 2013 in the Chicagoland area, the Partner Alliance was a first-of-its-kind program in our industry. Guided by values of education, community service, and inclusion, the Partner Alliance is comprised of local and diverse supplier partners who meet quarterly to learn about topics in the industry, best practices, and business opportunities. Each meeting concludes with a community service project.
Mentorship & Opportunities
This supplier highlight shows how our efforts align with our clients’ programs to develop small and minority businesses. Not only do we partner with suppliers to develop them as a true extension of our company, but we empower them through mentorship, education, and training to establish themselves in the industry and grow along with us.
Centuri is proud to provide opportunities for diverse suppliers in the construction industry. Here’s how you can work with us.
