Quest Diagnostics is committed to diversity among our suppliers.It is our policy to provide fair and equitable opportunity for qualified small businesses, including those owned by minorities and women, and to encourage participation of these suppliers in our procurement activities. We believe that working with small diverse suppliers supports our business objectives. Strengthening our minority, women, veterans and service-disabled veteran-owned small business communities, including historically underutilized business zones, economically contributes to the overall economic growth and expansion of our markets. It is also a critical element of the company’s diversity vision.
