WHO WE ARE
The Business Diversity & Equity (BD&E) promotes the University’s commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion by encouraging the UW community to consider small, local and diverse businesses when sourcing and purchasing goods and services.
“Business diversity is about creating avenues of opportunity for small, local and diverse businesses. It’s about keeping UW dollars within Washington state, to fund job creation and spur the growth of the local economy.”
– Lou Cariello, Vice President of UW Facilities
