Supplier Diversity & Inclusion Program


Penn Procurement Services hosts events throughout the year in support of Philadelphia’s diverse business community.

Catering@Penn Event Crowd

In an effort to promote Penn’s contracted caterers and its Catering@Penn platform, Penn Procurement Services, in collaboration with the University’s Association of Business Administrators (ABA), hosted a “Catering@Penn” tasting event on October 12 at the Annenberg Center for Performing Arts.

Monthly Open Houses for New Diverse Suppliers

If you’re a newly onboarded diverse supplier, there's a new option available to help acquaint your company with the University’s procurement environment. Penn Procurement Services is conducting virtual open houses each  month. These virtual sessions will offer the opportunity to learn more about the ins and outs of working with Penn’s systems and its Strategic Sourcing team, while offering insights on doing business within Penn’s large, decentralized environment.
