Diversity drives innovation at American

American drives business through diversity

The Supplier Diversity program affords qualified small, small disadvantaged, small women-owned, federal HUBZone, veteran-owned, service-disabled veteran-owned and those businesses certified by a third party as minority-owned, women-owned and LGBT-owned the opportunity to participate in American Airlines’ procurement process for products and services.

We source the best quality products and services to provide to our customers. To do so, we rely on our suppliers and contractors to perform to the highest industry standards. The Supplier Diversity program is designed to bring the added value of diversity to our purchasing program by proactively seeking out diverse suppliers through direct relationships with American and indirect relationships with our prime suppliers and contractors. The program is a catalyst to foster mutually beneficial relationships throughout the United States.

At American, we:

  • Evaluate products and services on their merits, giving fair and impartial consideration to all suppliers
  • Award contracts based on the highest quality and best delivery combined with the most competitive cost to the corporation
  • Review the performance of our suppliers and contractors to enhance their ability to provide products and services that exceed industry standards
  • Ensure inclusion of diverse companies in procurement opportunities
