Jackson’s Supplier Diversity Initiatives

Jackson encourages and supports the participation of diverse suppliers that can successfully compete for prime or sub-contracting opportunities. As a race- and gender-neutral organization, we engage in a number of organizations and activities to encourage outreach, identification and participation of Small and Historically Underutilized Businesses (S/UBs), including Minority-, Women-, Veteran- and/or Service Disabled Veteran-owned businesses in contracting opportunities.

A supplier is considered diverse if the business is at least 51% minority-, women-, veteran-, and/or service disabled veteran-owned. Certifications are issued by nationally recognized certifiers such as The Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), regional affiliates of The National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC) like The Florida State Minority Supplier Development Council (FSMSDC), and The U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs Office of Small & Disadvantaged Business Utilization (VetBiz).

Jackson strengthens its commitment to support diverse suppliers through collaborative relationships with locally- and nationally-recognized organizations such as the Florida State Minority Supplier Development Council (FSMSDC), Healthcare Supplier Diversity Alliance (HSDA), National Association of Black Women in Construction (NABWIC), Miami-Dade Chamber of Commerce.
