Supplier Diversity

Creating and growing a diverse supply chain at Citrix through equity and inclusion

Supplier Diversity (SD) is an established business program that actively encourages diversity within the supply base, promoting social inclusion through the use of diverse suppliers (defined as a business owned by an under-represented group/person).

At Citrix, the Supplier Diversity team actively works to identify diverse organizations to be included in sourcing activities, as well as tracking and reporting diverse supplier activity to Citrix customers.

Why we value Supplier Diversity

Diverse businesses frequently provide creativity, flexibility and new ideas. The inclusion of diverse suppliers in our supply chain helps Citrix to better understand the needs of our customers and the communities we serve, while continuing to innovate and provide long-term benefits for our customers.
