Our goal is to build and maintain an inclusive supplier diversity program that provides maximum opportunity for small and diverse businesses to become OVG vendors. The Duke Energy Convention Center is managed by OVG (Oak View Group). By providing local, small and diverse businesses opportunities to work with us, we foster economic inclusivity and ensure a positive impact is made in the communities we operate.
Who do we Consider to Be a Diverse Supplier?
A diverse supplier is “a company/trader owned and managed at least 51% by a non-white minority, a disabled person or a woman.” We currently recognize a wide range of diverse certifications that include minority businesses, women, veterans, LGBTQ+, disabled persons, and other local city certifications.
Further Information on minority business certificates:
- National Minority Supplier Diversity Council
- Women’s Business Enterprise National Council
- The National LGBT Chamber of Commerce
- and others
