• Summary
– At United, we emphasize Working Together. Working Together isn't
limited to our workforce; it continues in our relationships with our
suppliers. We value and respect suppliers with diverse backgrounds
that can offer unique viewpoints and help us bring new perspective to
our products and services. We seek to ensure that small and diverse
suppliers have equal access to business opportunities with United and
we encourage them to contact us for opportunities to provide their
products and services. Our efforts aren't limited just to those dollars
spent directly with our suppliers; we encourage our large suppliers to
provide the same opportunities to diverse suppliers.
– We encourage you to go to our Supplier Diversity website, which can
be found at United/Global Citizenship.
