Supplier diversity

Our Supplier Diversity Program provides qualified certified small and diverse businesses with opportunities to become a preferred vendor for Thermo Fisher Scientific. We recognize the importance of valuing the diversity of our employees, and all whom we do business with is an integral element of our corporate culture. And we are committed to ensuring that we embed this inclusive culture in all our business practices.

One way we accomplish this is through actively working to build and maintain relationships with well qualified small, veteran, minority, LGTB, disabled and women-owned businesses.

We invest in the resources, policies, and tools needed to make this vision a reality. By continually increasing the diversity of our world-class supply chain, we benefit by obtaining the value of the innovative solutions and the fresh business perspective such firms have to offer. They become our partners in maintaining our position as a leader in our industry. Just as important, by working to expand the field of opportunity, we help create the conditions that stimulate economic growth in the communities where we, our customers, and our employees live and do business.
