We believe having diverse suppliers in our supply chain will drive innovative and creative solutions that will benefit the business, our customers and the community in which we operate. Catalent is committed to drive and further incorporate diversity into the Global Procurement and Supply Chain Organization, with a key purpose of developing more business partnerships with qualified minority-owned, women, veteran, disadvantaged, disabled, LGBTQ+ and small business enterprises and others that create mutual benefits.
As part of our evolving responsible supplier initiative and to further advance diversity & inclusion outside of our walls, we are implementing a supplier diversity program led by a dedicated Global Procurement Director. The program will accelerate our diverse and responsible practices throughout our supply chain and provide an even broader range of supplier-partners and options to our Business. Catalent has started to integrate requirements to include qualified diverse suppliers in our global sourcing process and we are actively engaging with external resources to access information on suppliers that hold diverse status certification.
Expectations and responsibilities of the Global Procurement Organization regarding the on-going development of our diverse supplier initiative include:
(1) Establish the relevant governance, controls, tools and metrics to demonstrate the successful implementation and performance
(2) Monitor through routine audits the strict compliance and adherence to this program
(3) Deliver positive results in alignment with customer and shareholder expectations while meeting Catalent’s values of Patient First, People, Integrity, Customer Dedication, Innovation and Excellence
(4) Participate in external supplier / customer diversity meetings, conferences or local community initiatives that encourage suppliers to participate in our program
Please stay tuned to learn more about our emerging diverse supplier platform in the coming months.
We encourage diverse suppliers to contact us directly by submitting their company information or questions related to this program to email@example.com.
