Chrysler was recently selected by DiversityBusiness.com as one of the Top 50 Companies Creating Opportunities for Multicultural Businesses. The 13th annual list is a result of an online election that involves over a million multicultural business owners. Online voters are asked to answer ten questions about company performance relating to the opportunities the companies provide to minority-owned businesses.
“Chrysler Group is celebrating the thirtieth anniversary of our supplier diversity program this year,” said Scott Kunselman, Senior Vice President of purchasing and supplier quality for Chrysler. “We remain as committed as ever to creating opportunities for minority-owned, women-owned and veteran-owned businesses because we believe that a diverse supply chain leads to better, more innovative products for our customers,” said Kunselman.
Chrysler has had a commitment for decades to increase purchasing from suppliers that are either minority-owned, women-owned, or veteran owned. Chrysler’s diversity goals require that ten percent of a Tier One supplier’s procurement purchases are sourced to minority suppliers. Earlier this year, Chrysler announced that it spent over two billion dollars with about 200 minority suppliers in 2011.
Chrysler continues to strive for diversity and supports several organizations that achieve minority sourcing goals, including the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council and the National Minority Supplier Development Council.
