Making Connections: It’s what its all about
Our goal at the USBLN is to unite business around disability inclusion. I can think of no better way to do that than through our new Disability Supplier Diversity Program Certification and Sourcing HUB. Our DSDP team has been working hard the past several months, along with our technology founding partners, Mitsubishi Electric America Foundation, Northrop Grumman Corporation, Wells Fargo and our accessibility technology partner, AudioEye to bring this first of its kind accessible to all technology tool to life. The Certification and Sourcing Hub will combine the following in one secure site:
- Disability-owned business enterprise (DOBE) and service-disabled veteran disability-owned business enterprise (SDV-DOBE) certification application/renewal
- Administrative review, vetting and communication functions
- Buyer sourcing of certified disability suppliers
The Certification and Sourcing Hub will provide certified disability-owned and service-disabled veteran disability-owned businesses the opportunity to promote their cost-competitive businesses to corporate buyers and decision makers. This will also allow us to certify more disability-owned business enterprises (DOBEs) and service-disabled veteran disability-owned business enterprises (SDV-DOBEs) by improving the efficiency of the overall certification and administrative processes. This expanded pool of disability suppliers will bring increased innovation and competitiveness to the marketplace, promote job creation and provide people with disabilities greater self-employment and economic opportunities.
We look forward to sharing our success stories from both disability suppliers and corporate partners with you in the future.
To learn more and read why our founding partners chose to get involved, here’s our news release.
