IRVING, Texas--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Vizient, Inc. announces it has been recognized by Black EOE Journal on its annual list of “Best of the Best Top Supplier Diversity Programs.” Vizient was the only health care group purchasing organization recognized on this year’s list.
“The health care supply chain has unique complexities that can be daunting even for larger suppliers. For minority-owned suppliers, who possess the needed product or service expertise but tend to be smaller in scale, the challenge is often greater,” said Mark Cartwright, senior director of supplier diversity. “This is an honor for Vizient and it demonstrates our commitment to increasing supplier diversity within the complex health care supply chain.”
Black EOE Journal polled hundreds of Fortune 1000 companies for its 2017 Best of the Best evaluations. The lists were compiled from market research, independent research, diversity conference participation and survey responses that were performed by DiversityComm’s agents and/or affiliates. The results are published in the summer issue of Black EOE Journal and available on newsstands mid-July.
