Supplier Diversity & Inclusion
Hollingsworth Supplier Diversity & Inclusion encourages the award of contracts in a way that strengthens and increases business opportunities with diverse suppliers including but not limited to Minority Business Enterprises (MBEs), Women Business Enterprises (WBEs), Service-Disabled Veteran Business Enterprises (SDVOBEs), Veteran Business Enterprises (VBEs), Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender Business Enterprises (LGBTBEs); and Disability-Owned Business Enterprises (DOBEs).
Why is Supplier Diversity Important to Hollingsworth?
Supplier Diversity is an integral part of one of the company’s Core Values: Community: We are committed to investing and engaging in the communities where we live and work in order to serve the greater good.

- National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC)

- U. S. Small Business Administration (SBA)
- System for Award Management (SAM)

We Support Minority Businesses
As a minority-owned company, Hollingsworth is committed to working with other minority-owned businesses whenever possible and our overall current “minority spend” is approximately 11 percent.
Hollingsworth actively works to be a strong company with a small company, family feel, in which employees are valued, proud to call home and that attracts the best talent.
Diversity, equity and inclusion (DE&I) is essential to achieving that objective.
A diverse supplier is a business that is at least 51% owned and operated by an individual or group that is part of a traditionally underrepresented or underserved group.
