Supplier Diversity

Intalere’s Supplier Diversity Program works to solidify the foundation of minority-owned, veteran-owned and women-owned businesses and create increased opportunities for these cornerstones of economic development.

We work hard to foster member and supplier diversity across our network and create partnerships that support and reflect the needs of all types of organizations. Intalere Suppliers that are minority-owned, veteran-owned and women-owned suppliers provide additional value to Intalere Members.
