The Hispanic Chamber of Commerce of Metro Orlando’s Supplier Diversity Program is a business initiative that supports the growth and development of diverse suppliers. The purpose is to educate diverse-owned businesses about different opportunities available to work with the public and private sector.
HCCMO hosts seminars related to supplier diversity opportunities; these events help start and develop relationships with buyers from major corporations and government agencies.
HCCMO has a Supplier Diversity Council which oversees and manages the program. Members of this Council meet monthly to achieve various goals, including:
- Assist in certifying diverse companies
- Increase awareness of business opportunities with corporations and government entities
- Increase corporate and government entities engagement with diverse suppliers
- Council is comprised of representatives from government entities, corporations, and MBE-certified businesses
For a diverse-owned business to be able to take advantage of this program, it must become certified. The certification process is in many cases unknown to many entrepreneurs, and there is a need in communities across the nation to find useful and practical information related to the process and the steps to become a certified organization. Join us for our next Supplier Diversity Seminar and find out if there is a certification that can benefit your company and get educated on the process.
