Supplier Diversity Program

At Humana, we want our vendors and suppliers to help drive innovation, improve quality and sustain growth. And we strive to attract qualified, certified suppliers who reflect our customers, associates and communities we serve.

A group of team members from the Supplier Diversity Program discuss at a coffee shop.

Humana’s priority is to obtain a diverse supplier base reflective of the overall customers, associates and communities we serve. We’re also committed to fair and equitable business practices and to social responsibility.

The following classifications of diverse businesses are included in the Humana Supplier Diversity Program.

  • Minority Business Enterprise (MBE)
  • Women’s Business Enterprise (WBE)

The Supplier Diversity Team’s partnership with national, regional and local councils solidifies Humana’s foundation of diversity and inclusion. We encourage suppliers with existing certifications from the organizations listed below to register to become a Humana supplier.

If your company meets certification requirements for organizations on the list, but does not have certification, first register with those organizations. After it is certified, apply to become a Humana supplier.
