Who Qualifies as a Diverse Supplier?
At Schneider Electric, we believe that strengthening the minority business community contributes to the overall economic growth and expansion of our markets. Therefore, it is Schneider Electric's policy to provide minority and women-owned businesses an equal opportunity to compete with all other suppliers in the marketplace.
Schneider Electric is in constant pursuit of qualified Small Business Enterprise (SBE), Veteran (VET), Minority-Owned Enterprise (MBE), Women-Owned Enterprise (WBE), and Historically Underutilized Business Zones (HUBZone) suppliers that provide quality products and services at competitive prices. Schneider Electric also acknowledges that each minority and/or woman-owned business must be 51% owned, controlled or operated by a person of female gender or one of the following ethnic groups: African American, Asian-Indian American, Native American, Asian-Pacific American, Hispanic American.
