Prioritizing Supplier Diversity at Cleveland Public Library

Laura Walter, Cleveland Public Library

Cleveland Public Library’s mission to be a diverse and inclusive organization extends not only to its staff, patrons, and community members, but also to its suppliers. For example, are the Library’s plumbers, painters, carpenters, electricians, and those who provide procurement services representative of the community the Library serves? To address that question and to enact meaningful change, Cleveland Public Library established a Supplier Diversity Council to identify, engage, and hire minority-owned and otherwise underrepresented businesses.

Cleveland Public Library (CPL), Regency, AKA Team and Moody Nolan are pleased to invite all interested local, minority, and women owned businesses to meet with our project team and discuss the Cleveland Public Library’s Our Future is Building – Eastman Branch project on Wednesday, October 6.
