UScellular is committed to enhancing the use of certified diverse owned businesses by proactively developing relationships with minority, women, veteran, service-disabled veteran, disabled, LGBTQ+, disadvantaged and small-owned businesses within our supply chain. Our Supplier Diversity Program is built on policies, processes and behaviors that together ensure engagement with certified diverse owned businesses in our supply chain and procurement initiatives. It is focused on:



Social Responsibility

We pride ourselves on serving our customers, businesses and communities in our service territories. We know that there is more than a good way to do business – there’s a right way.



Innovation & Diversity of Thought

Diverse businesses are viewed as valued and strategic partners that bring distinct skills, different perspectives and innovative ideas to make us more competitive in the marketplace.



Economic Impact

This program strives to foster awareness, enhance collaboration and provide support to diverse businesses and their respective communities while making an impact in cost savings and sales generation through improved supplier diversity performance.

Growing Partnerships

We have partnered with The National LGBT Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) - the business voice of the LBTQIA+ community. NGLCC is the largest advocacy organization dedicated to expanding economic opportunities and advancements for LGBTQ people and the exclusive certifying body for LBGTQ-owned businesses. Through networking with their membership and community, this partnership gives UScellular the opportunity to connect with and support the LGBTQIA+ community, champion each other and provide resources to traditionally underrepresented communities.
