The EmblemHealth supplier diversity program recognizes diverse suppliers who are 51% owned, operated, and controlled by designated underutilized groups. These include minority, women, veteran, LGBTQ, and disabled communities. We encourage certification, recognizing participation as a source of credibility, collaboration, business opportunity, and enhancement.
Public certifying agencies include local, state, and federal government programs that verify minority, women, veteran, LGBTQ, disability-owned, and other disadvantaged business status. Certification can be issued by one or more of the following agencies:
NYC Small Business Services (SBS)
New York Empire State Development (ESD)
EmblemHealth also recognizes private certifying organizations including:
National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC)
Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC)
National Veterans Business Development Council (NVBDC)
National LGBT Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC)
As a leader in health and wellness in the New York tristate area, EmblemHealth strongly advises our minority and women-owned business partners to be certified by The City of New York.
