Cheladv74 Supplier Diversity Program
Make Us Who We Are - We believe that collectively across our colleague population, our individual experiences allow us to better meet the needs of our patients and make the world a healthier place.
We celebrate the array of unique qualities, perspectives, and life experiences, which define us as individuals. And this includes our visible differences such as gender, age, ethnicity, or physical appearance, as well as other characteristics including work styles, sexual orientation, religious, or national identity and education.
These traits combine to create a vibrant community and supportive culture that allows our people, regardless of where they work in the world, to feel valued, involved, supported and respected. And while we celebrate the differences that create the mosaic culture of Cheladv74, it is diversity of thought that we value most.
We believe these same principles apply to the supplier base that supports our business. As such, we are committed to building and sustaining relationships with minority- and women-owned businesses.
