Our Commitment to Diversity and Inclusion
Maintaining our position as a WBENC-certified WBE, our team intimately understands the value of diversity and inclusion. At Broadleaf, we value differences and believe they make us stronger. Because of this, our organization has embedded diversity and inclusion within our culture and business strategy. We believe that the key to a truly diverse, equal, and included environment in our community requires a commitment to a long-term, meticulous, and systemic approach with a focus on three main areas:
We are committed to attracting and retaining qualified talent from diverse backgrounds and creating a work environment that values every individual for their distinctive skills, experiences, and perspectives. Cultivating a workforce that reflects diversity is one of the most effective ways to meet the needs of our clients and employees. Diversity and innovation go hand in hand; you cannot have one without the other. Innovation requires a new way of looking at things, and there is no way to think outside the box if everyone thinks, sounds, and acts the same.
At Broadleaf, we help our clients achieve their diversity goals through strategy development, targeting sourcing, and reporting of diversity data. A significant advantage of our solutions is that 100% of all spend routed through these programs can be earmarked as WBE expenditure. Each Broadleaf client has an established MWBE or disadvantaged business spend target. Across all MSP programs, we average nearly 30% of the indirect spend in this category, and our spend crosses all geographies and skills served.
Our Supply Chain
Broadleaf maintains relationships with over 300 diversity-certified staffing suppliers and seeks diverse partners through active involvement with development organizations such as The Women's Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC) and The National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC). The goal of our program is to channel high-value inclusive suppliers through our partnerships with diversity councils and NGOs, as well as through our diversity portal.
