Inclusion of diverse suppliers in the commerce of our supply chain is a major priority in our global procurement program at MGM Resorts International. Our goal is to provide access for qualified diverse suppliers to business opportunities with our Company that promotes our strategic objectives of quality and price competition, to our competitive advantage. Participation in our business provides diverse enterprises with economic opportunity, access to developmental guidance, capacity-building experience and the potential for repeat business critical to growth. While the procurement landscape is constantly shifting due to global consolidation and other economic forces, we attempt to connect opportunities in our supply network to local and small businesses where possible. Our partnerships with local and diverse businesses also contribute to the development of the communities that host our resorts.
Our Supplier Diversity Program includes enterprises owned by minorities, women, the economically disadvantaged, veterans, LGBT individuals and/or persons with disabilities. We require our primary suppliers to in turn utilize diverse businesses in their procurement processes and to track and report these results to us on an annual basis.
