“Our suppliers are a key part of our One Ford team, and we are committed to building a supplier base that reflects our employees, our customers and our shareholders,” said Alan Mulally, Ford president and CEO. “Having a broad and diverse supplier base reinforces our commitment to the communities where we live and work, and enables us to serve customers with a full family of vehicles offering the very best quality, fuel efficiency, safety, smart design and value.”
Ford’s commitment to supplier diversity began in 1978 with the creation of its Supplier Diversity Development program. The goal of the program was to support women and minority-owned businesses and to create opportunities for diverse suppliers to grow.
Just in the past year, Ford’s Supplier Diversity Development program has developed several shining examples of what the program was intended to achieve, including the Women’s Business Enterprise National Council, Michigan Minority Supplier Development Council, Husco Automotive Technologies and many more businesses that are owned and operated by minorities or women. These examples are why the NMSDC honored Ford with its Corporation of the Year Award.
“I cannot think of a more fitting way to continue celebrating NMSDC’s 40th anniversary,” said Joset B. Wright, president of NMSDC. “Over the years, Ford has been a true supporter of NMSDC’s initiatives. In 2012, due to the company’s policies, supplier investment, technology support, and joint venture and strategic-alliance creation, we felt Ford took its efforts to a new level and embodied an absolute model of minority supplier development and collaboration.”
