Supplier Diversity

Do You Qualify as a Diverse Supplier?

Our supplier diversity program is designed to engage firms that are certified in the following categories:

  • Minority-owned. African American, Hispanic or Latino, Asian American, Native Hawaiian or other Pacific Islander, and American Indian or Alaska Native–owned businesses).
  • Woman-owned.
  • Lesbian-, Gay-, Bisexual- and/or Transgender (LGBT)-owned.
  • Small disadvantaged businesses (SDB). Socially and economically disadvantaged–owned business as defined by the Small Business Administration (SBA).
  • Veteran-owned and service-disabled veteran­–owned.
  • Disabled-owned.
  • HubZone. Businesses located within a historically underutilized business zone and that draw at least 35 percent of their workforce from residents of a HubZone.

A certified business that is at least 51 percent owned and whose daily business operations are managed and controlled by one of the categories above is eligible to register as a diverse supplier with AARP.

We accept certifications from a wide variety of certifying organizations across the country.

Let's connect! Register as a small and/or diverse-owned firm to complete the registration form so that we can enter your firm into our system. This does not guarantee or represent a commitment to do business with AARP, but it is a first step for us to get to know each other. We will keep all information confidential.

Thank you for your interest in partnering and sharing your expertise with us; we truly appreciate it.
