Supplier diversity

We source products and services from businesses that reflect the diversity of our markets and contribute to the health of our communities, customers and company.

Selecting our suppliers

Lincoln’s procurement team is responsible for identifying, evaluating and qualifying suppliers to support our business. While we seek suppliers that provide first-rate goods and services at the best cost, we also consider innovative ideas and solutions. A diverse and inclusive supplier base enhances our brand, expands the breadth of our supplier talent and reinforces our commitment to the communities where we live and work.

Using diversity affiliations and networks

Lincoln Financial Group has joined several networks, such as the Minority Supplier Development Council (MSDC) and the Women’s Business Enterprise Council (WBEC), to help us identify potential suppliers in various categories. These organizations provide validation of supplier certification/status for small and diverse enterprises.
