Why Diversity works and is Necessary

Diversity works and is necessary in the contracting world for what I believe are some very obvious reasons.  All citizens should be given a fair and equal opportunity to participate in the American Dream.  Notice I did not say GIVEN the American Dream, but rather given a fair and equal opportunity.

When multiple vendors compete for work; the supply base grows, new qualified vendors are added to vendor lists, competition makes vendors better and more competitive and competition among vendors helps ensure the government gets the best possible product or service at the best price.

To help ensure the government (tax payers) get the most bang for their buck, it is imperative that the largest possible number of vendors compete and have a fair shot of winning the work.  To help ensure that ordinary people have a fair and equal opportunity to participate in the American Dream, everybody has to be provided an opportunity to compete.

Unfortunately, without Diversity goals, large segments of society might continue to be marginalized and NEVER have the opportunity to participate in competition for the American Dream.  Make the most of your opportunity.


See you on the high ground!
