Supplier Diversity at the St. Louis Fed

The Federal Reserve Bank of St. Louis makes every effort in its policies, procedures and actions to encourage competition and provide fair and equal treatment for all organizations. Our Supplier Diversity and Procurement teams are committed to growing our diverse supplier base through outreach and engagement that will build stronger business relationships with our community.

Our supplier diversity initiative supports the St. Louis Fed’s strategic plan in two ways:

  1. Promoting awareness and understanding of our services and corporate citizenship.
  2. Continuing execution of a comprehensive diversity and inclusion strategy, including operating an Office of Minority and Women Inclusion.

Each spring and fall, we host a Supplier Diversity Workshop to introduce women- and minority-owned businesses to the St. Louis Fed and to advise them how to become a part of our supplier community. This outreach initiative aims to build relationships and drive economic development in our communities. Attendees learn from a variety of St. Louis Fed representatives, including Economic Research, External Engagement and Corporate Communications, Information Security, Legal and Procurement.
