2nd tier expectations

At Adient, we’re committed to having a supply chain that mirrors the diversity of the consumer who sit in our seats. That’s why we expect our suppliers to incorporate supplier diversity best practices and objectives into their own supply chain. 

The following expectations are required of all suppliers and are tied to our annual supplier scorecard and awards process:

  • Submit an annual plan to develop and grow your supplier diversity initiatives
  • Report quarterly diverse spend with a 5% goal
  • Designate a supplier diversity coordinator
  • Become a regional and/or National member of NMSDC and/or WBENC
  • Attend NMSDC/WBENC procurement trade show or networking event

Because growing a diverse supply chain is an Adient imperative, we conduct business training modules to help second tier suppliers in pursuit of higher productivity and profits. Click here to learn how to get involved.

Congratulations to our Supplier Diversity Excellence Award winners. These suppliers launched successful supplier diversity initiatives and exceeded our goals.
