City of Columbus Plan Room

Increase Diversity

The City of Columbus Increase Diversity Program reflects our commitment to equity in the procurement process, the recognition of the value of a diverse supplier base, and the positive impact supplier diversity has on both City government operations and the greater Columbus community.

The City of Columbus Increase Diversity Program is a comprehensive approach to address disparities in the City’s contracting procedures, and to make an affirmative contribution to the growth and development of small, minority and women-owned business enterprises in Central Ohio.

Join us in our extensive series of trainings, workshops and professional development.
