Diverse Suppliers Encouraged to Register
The Hartford is committed to working with diverse suppliers that support our long-term growth and add value to our company. We encourage diverse suppliers to register through The Hartford’s onboarding portal. After registering, we will notify you by email that your submission is in our supplier diversity database where our procurement professionals can consider you for future opportunities.
A business is considered a diverse supplier to The Hartford if it’s certified by one of these organizations: National Minority Supplier Development Council, National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce, U.S. Small Business Administration (including disadvantaged businesses), U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, Women’s Business Enterprise National Council or your state or municipal government. These organizations provide a direct link between corporate America and diverse suppliers.
What to Expect by Registering
Registering as a diverse supplier does not constitute approval of your business as a supplier or obligate The Hartford to solicit a quotation or include your business in requests for proposals. Registering allows The Hartford to learn about the capabilities of your business and confirm your qualifications as a diverse supplier.
Tier II Supplier Diversity
The Hartford supports Tier II supplier diversity spending, which includes subcontractors providing goods or services to Tier I or primary suppliers of The Hartford. Tier II also includes indirect spending, such as prorated contracted spending with diverse suppliers based on supplier sales or a percentage of a supplier's total revenue.
For more information, please contact the director of supplier diversity.
