Paramount Supplier Diversity program is focused on increasing and strengthening partnerships with diverse suppliers, which include minority, women, LGBT, veteran, and disability-owned businesses that are considered to compete for contract opportunities within our supply chain.
Paramount (formerly ViacomCBS) is committed to supplier diversity. Strengthening the diversity of our suppliers is a strategic goal and vital for the economic viability of communities where we live, work, and do business. Our Supplier Diversity Program is designed to make purchasing practices more inclusive and maximize participation of qualified diverse suppliers.
