Our Supplier Diversity Program

What is Supplier Diversity?

Advancing Supplier Diversity means creating a supplier base that reflects the diversity of our consumers. Our Supplier Diversity program is a proactive initiative that identifies opportunities for Unilever to partner with underrepresented groups in businesses.

We are committed to creating a supply base centered around purpose and aligned with our mission of conducting business with integrity and openness.
