Supplier Diversity


About our Supplier Diversity Program

Capital One is committed to making supplier diversity an integral part of the way we do business—creating mutually beneficial relationships with minority-, woman-, veteran-, service-disability veteran-, disability-, and LGBTQ-owned businesses. We seek to identify and encourage these diverse businesses to compete for our commodities and services throughout the Capital One enterprise. The goal of our program is to include qualified diverse enterprises in every sourcing opportunity based on commodity need wherever these suppliers exist. We have a team of associates dedicated to establishing relationships with diverse suppliers in the communities in which we operate. To date, numerous diverse-owned suppliers have benefited from the program.

Innovation Powered By Diverse Perspectives

Diverse businesses are flexible, innovative and driven. By including diverse businesses in our supply chain, we maximize the power of different perspectives to deliver exceptional products and services to our customers.

Existing Non-Diverse Suppliers

At Capital One, diversity and inclusion has always been an integral part of our culture. Now more than ever, we embrace the inclusion of diverse-owned businesses in our supply base as a fundamental part of our D&I efforts. We expect our non-diverse suppliers to utilize qualified diverse firms in the execution of their business wherever possible. Through Capital One’s Tier II program, our non-diverse suppliers are encouraged to promote the growth of diverse-owned businesses by employing them in support of our contract directly or in the general operation of their business. Your spend with these diverse-owned companies is considered Tier II spend to Capital One.

Tier II Spend/Reporting

As a supplier to Capital One, we request that you report your Tier II spend with diverse-owned businesses to us on a quarterly basis. If your firm has been asked to submit Tier II spend, please log in here to submit spend. Please contact supplierdiversitytieriisupport@capitalone.com if you need to register.
