Nissan Gets a Nod from the NMSDC for Increasing Its Commitment to Minority Companies

Nissan Presented with Gazelle Award by National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC)

Nissan has been stepping up its game lately, renewing and reinvigorating its commitment to a diverse supply chain, having set specific targets to ensure that it meets those goals. Since almost 40% of the folks who drive and buy Nissan cars, crossovers, SUVs, and trucks identify as multicultural, it's more important than ever to support those people and communities by partnering with minority suppliers, and that's what Nissan's Supplier Diversity Initiative seeks to do.

 

 

The National Minority Supplier Development Council (NMSDC) acts as an advocate for NMSDC-certified Asian, Black, Hispanic, and Native American businesses and helps to connect them with corporate members, like Nissan. The Gazelle Award, which Nissan was presented with, is meant to recognize corporate partners who are increasing how much they spend with minority businesses at a double-digit rate of growth; today, we are proud to announce that honor goes to Nissan.

"Nissan has set specific targets both internally and externally with our Tier 1 supplier population to increase our supplier diversity spend," said Gary Zoller, senior director, Vehicle Purchasing, and executive champion for the company's Supplier Diversity function. "To help us achieve those targets, we are committed to providing support based on specific needs or requests from suppliers so they can successfully meet Nissan's supply chain requirements." —from an October 26, 2017 Nissan U.S. Press Release
