WILMINGTON – DuPont and The Delaware Black Chamber of Commerce (DEBCC) announced a partnership Monday to elevate diversity and equity in Delaware’s business community, with an aim to level the playing field and increase participation and inclusion among the First State’s minority-owned small businesses.

DuPont will be joining the DEBCC as a premier member, and both organizations will be launching a Supplier Diversity Series, premiering Oct. 20, to increase the participation rates of minority-owned businesses as suppliers and businesses partners.

“We are excited to partner with the Delaware Black Chamber of Commerce to provide opportunities for small and diverse businesses in the communities in which we live, and work; something DuPont has been committed to for over 45 years,” said Miguel Gonzalez, DuPont chief procurement officer, in a statement. “At DuPont, we value the strategic relationships we have with our suppliers and the significant role they play in assisting us to deliver on our purpose to empower the world with the essential innovations to thrive. We’re proud of our long history of collaborating with suppliers that represent our diverse employee and customer base and look forward to continuing to expand our diverse supplier network.”

DEBCC Founder, President, and CEO Ayanna Khan said that “supplier diversity is, quite simply, good for business.”

“The higher the participation rates of all types of businesses, a greater and more diverse pool of talent is at the table, which ultimately improves business results,” Khan added. “We are extremely grateful to welcome DuPont as a premier member to our organization, and we know that they will be a tremendous partner in helping us level the playing field and advance Delaware’s collective economic footprint.”
