Concurrently, we continuously engage in vetting of and discussions with diverse suppliers for alignment and participation in our program network, based on both their skillsets and geographic capabilities. This consistent attention to DE&I initiatives allows DZX to not only meet but exceed diversity spend goals established within our client network.
