Spent with diverse suppliers

Supplier Diversity

We believe spending with diverse suppliers promotes economic development and provides valuable perspectives. Using our Business Spend Management platform and Supplier Diversity Dashboard, we track diversity among our suppliers.

In 2022, we spent $23 million with diverse suppliers, representing 6.7% of our total spend.

Empower ERG MEvolution Program

Many women face huge challenges. Too often, the result is low energy and feeling alone. Empower saw an opportunity to support our female colleagues through MEvolution, a science-based personal growth program that measures and increases human capacity by teaching people how to manage, direct, and optimize their energy.
