At Nationwide, we're committed to identifying and establishing effective and positive business relationships with diverse suppliers. Leveraging the creativity and ingenuity of our supplier base while driving growth and minimizing barriers of entry for minority, women, veteran and LGBT-owned businesses is at the core of Nationwide’s Supplier Diversity program.

The importance of diversity and inclusion at Nationwide

Diversity and inclusion are at the heart of our On Your Side® experience for our associates, suppliers and customers. Each individual is unique. Recognizing this uniqueness and knowing how to work effectively across our differences are critical to our success as a company and being able to deliver on our promise.

The importance of diversity and inclusion to our culture and our business is reflected in our values and every aspect of the company. Our core performance value depends on our commitment to listening to every voice and considering every point of view in our daily interactions with each other, our suppliers and our customers.

We're proud of our commitment to diversity, and that includes the suppliers we work with. As one of the largest insurance and financial companies in the world, it can be a challenge for suppliers to find the right decision makers to meet with. That's why we established a corporate-wide Supplier Diversity program.
