Supplier Diversity and Inclusion Philosophy
Vocalink Global holds National Certifications as a Minority Business Enterprise (MBE), Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE) and Woman-Owned Small Business (WOSB). We also hold State of Ohio EDGE and MBE certifications, along with several county and city-level certifications.
As a diverse supplier itself, Vocalink Global understands the importance of supporting diverse companies. That’s why Vocalink Global focuses on supplier diversity and economic conclusion in its purchasing decisions. Our supplier diversity mission is to hire the best-in-class diverse suppliers in our supply chain.
Ohio’s Encouraging Diversity, Growth and Equity (EDGE) program assists socially and economically disadvantaged businesses to obtain state government contracts. The EDGE program supports companies in construction, architecture and engineering, professional services, goods and services, and information technology services.
