Supplier diversity is a growing aim in companies around the country, including here at Coastal Paving & Excavating. But what does it mean, exactly?
Supplier diversity is a socially conscious business decision to embrace diversity not just in the hiring process, but at all levels of the organization’s supply chain. While many companies aim to create a blended workforce, supplier diversity focuses on working with minority-owned companies throughout the supply chain.
What it doesn’t mean is giving less-qualified companies our business simply because they’re minority owned. The reality is, for any service on the market, there are typically numerous providers who are equally qualified. Supplier diversity is simply about recognizing that many minorities lack widespread support and are often at an inherent disadvantage despite being equally qualified.
The minorities that we aim to work with are many: women, veterans, disabled individuals, members of the LGBTQIA+ community, as well as ethnic, religious, and cultural minorities. Many of these communities face adversities in advancing their businesses, and we want to help them find the success they deserve. For a business to be considered minority-owned, at least 51% of it should be owned and operated by a traditionally underrepresented or underserved group.
Supplier diversity is not only the right thing to do, it’s also a benefit to the companies who champion it. Recruiting a network of individuals with unique backgrounds can expose a company to unique perspectives and insights that allow them to better serve their community and employees and grow more profitable as a result.
Coastal Paving & Excavating is fully committed to embracing supplier diversity and social responsibility.

Supplier Diversity Leads to Business Success
The primary goal of any business is to grow in size, influence, and income. Supporting marginalized communities shows the community that you care about more than just profit, and in turn can make you more profitable.
Reaching out to help minorities exposes those minorities to your business and your unique value proposition.
