Corporate Membership Information
HMSDC Corporate members provide the necessary link to opportunities that MBEs need. Without the assistance of Corporate members, expansion and growth would not be possible. At the same time, Corporate members benefit in many ways.
Minority suppliers are the country’s fastest growing business sector. According to the Bureau of the Census, by the year 2020, the minority population will represent 34.4% of the total U.S. population. As the minority population continues to grow, those corporations that are comfortable with cultural diversity and change, and are responsive to their customers will be the ones that thrive.
Supplier diversity brings knowledge and experience that aids in understanding the world and competing effectively. As the chief executives of many of the country’s biggest companies see it, a diverse supplier base is no longer an option – it’s a business necessity.
