A Message from FORD LEADERSHIP
Since 1978, Ford's Supplier Diversity Development (SDD) program has cultivated successful relationships between the company and its minority, women and veteran owned supplier businesses.
These suppliers are playing an important role in the company's revitalized and expanding portfolio of high-quality, safe, fuel-efficient products equipped with smart technologies.
I believe the fundamental purpose of a corporation is to make people's lives better, and we can do that by creating outstanding products, by investing in communities, and by using our position as a leader to economically empower minority, women and veteran business enterprises.
Our Company is a reflection of America. One of the areas that makes Ford special is our long-standing commitment to diversity with our employees, dealers, suppliers and consumers.
Our Supplier Diversity Development program reflects the very best of our Company – great people working together as one team: to better our community, advocate and develop minority and women business enterprises, enrich business opportunities to drive profitability for all, and create an exciting and viable Ford and diverse supplier network.
Ford is all about preserving America’s heritage to improve the quality of life within our communities.
