A Message from Supplier Diversity
At Entergy, we’re living up to our commitment to develop partnerships with diverse suppliers.
Each day, we work with firms to help them understand Entergy’s business practices, policies and requirements. In 2005, Edison Electric Institute presented Entergy with its Supplier Diversity Award, given annually to companies for leadership and commitment to ensuring the active participation of minority- and women-owned business enterprises.
Commenting on that award, Electric Perspectives magazine wrote that Entergy "was recognized for a wide variety of initiatives to expand business opportunities for M/WBEs” including:
• Expanding the use of M/WBEs in non-traditional purchasing activities.
• Using a measurable, results-oriented process to establish annual procurement goals.
• Emphasizing its supplier diversity program and its goals and objectives within the corporation and throughout all of its service areas.
• Creating a ‘user friendly’ online registration/certification website to review potential suppliers.
Those continue to be among our key efforts, and we invite you to learn about others. I also encourage you to ask your own business partners and other companies who have direct experience with Entergy to tell you about their experiences with the company’s supplier diversity program.
And when you’re ready to connect to a potential future business relationship with Entergy, we’re ready to help – there’s just one more thing we ask you to do – CONTACT US. We’ll answer.
