Diversity in Staffing Resources

National Minority Supplier Diversity Council

The National Minority Supplier Development Council advances business opportunities for certified minority business enterprises and connects them to corporate members.


Women’s Business Enterprise National Council

The Women’s Business Enterprise National Council is the largest certifier of women-owned businesses in the U.S. and a leading advocate for women business owners and entrepreneurs.


National LGBT Chamber of Commerce

The National LGBT Chamber of Commerce supplier diversity initiative (SDI) serves as the exclusive third-party certifying organization of lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender-owned business enterprises (LGBTBEs) and works to enhance the visibility of LGBT businesses to corporations interested in conducting business with LGBT suppliers.


Disabled Person-Owned Business Enterprise

The Supplier Diversity program is the leading third-party certifying organization of disability-owned business enterprises (DOBEs), including service-disabled veteran-owned business enterprises (SDV-DOBEs) promoting their utilization and growth.


Small Business Administration 8(a) Program

The goal of the U.S. federal government is to award at least 5% of all federal contracting dollars to small disadvantaged businesses each year.


HUBZone Business

The U.S. federal government limits competition for certain contracts to businesses in historically underutilized business zones (HUBZones). Joining the HUBZone program will make businesses eligible to compete for the program’s set-aside contracts. Businesses must be certified by the SBA before applying for the HUBZone program.


Disadvantaged Business Enterprise

The U.S. Department of Transportation’s disadvantaged business enterprise (DBE) program provides a vehicle for increasing the participation by minority business enterprises in state and local procurement. To be certified as a DBE, a firm must be a small business owned and controlled by socially and economically disadvantaged individuals.


Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Business

The goal of the U.S. federal government is to award at least 3% of all federal contracting dollars each year to small businesses owned by service-disabled veterans.


Certified Veteran’s Business Enterprise and Service-Disabled Veteran’s Business Enterprise

The National Veteran-Owned Business Association (NaVOBA) has two certification programs-the Certified Veteran’s Business Enterprise and the Certified Service-Disabled Veteran’s Business Enterprise. This initiative creates a standard in certification for veteran-owned businesses of all sizes and enables corporate America to proactively source and confidently utilize businesses that are at least 51% owned, operated, and controlled by U.S. military veterans.
