Global Economy – Diverse Supply Base
Infinera advocates for the participation of small and diverse businesses in the procurement of goods and services in our global operational supply chain.
Broadening our range of suppliers often brings unique perspectives and skillsets to our supply base. Building relationships enhances the procurement team’s strategic sourcing goals of cost savings, value proposition, and risk management.
We take pride in doing business with like-minded people who value diversity. Our supplier diversity program is designed to help connect, grow, and support the supplier communities that contribute to Infinera’s success.
Infinera validates potential suppliers through third-party certifications. We adhere to the guidelines set forth by organizations such as WRMSDC, NMSDC, WBENC, NaVOBA, NGLCC, Disability:IN, and SBA when qualifying small and diverse businesses.
