Regions is committed to increasing supply chain opportunities for minority- and women-owned enterprises (M/WBEs) by providing access to contracting opportunities and supporting supplier development.
At Regions, we recognize that purchases from minority- and women-owned businesses can be vital in fueling their growth and provide a stable source of revenue for many years. This sort of activity improves community conditions as wealth is created for the owners and more jobs are created for minorities, women, and others.
Supplier diversity aligns with our corporate mission to make life better and is, without question, the right thing to do. Even more powerful is the fact that diverse suppliers increase competition, thereby driving more value, and they infuse our company with innovation to meet critical goals. Relationships with M/WBEs and their employees are also strategic because of their potential to lead to more customer relationships for Regions within diverse market segments.
When we support our communities by promoting the development of minority-and women-owned enterprises, everyone wins.
