At Solera, we recognize the importance of diversity and we value being a member of the communities in which we live and operate. Diversity in our supplier base is an important part of who we are as a wide range of suppliers are needed to support our business operations. Our supplier diversity program promotes business opportunities for diverse suppliers, including minority-owned, woman-owned, historically underutilized business zone (HUBZone), service-disabled veteran-owned, veteran-owned, LGBT, small businesses and other disadvantaged business enterprises in the various communities we serve. Sarah Iams works with internal business partners to expand our diverse supplier pool and build partnerships in our communities.
The supplier diversity program is an important part of our sourcing efforts. This program helps us to:
- Match qualified diverse suppliers with the needs of our internal business partners
- Build long-term business relationships with individuals that are reflective of our communities

We are dedicated to fair and open competition in sourcing. As part of our sourcing process, the Sourcing Solutions team provides our internal business partners with a list of qualified diverse suppliers to consider.
