Supplier diversity

For decades, TI has recognized that engaging minority and women-owned business entities and other disadvantaged business enterprises in our supply chain provides TI with unique, innovative and cost-effective products and services. Our objective is to use an inclusive sourcing model that seeks out and enables certified disadvantaged business enterprises to qualify and successfully compete for our business. When these opportunities do not exist, we encourage our nondiverse supply base (referenced as prime suppliers) to build inclusive supply chains.
