Diverse Supplier Network Objectives

  • Engagement with certified diverse suppliers who will provide quality materials and services at competitive prices.
  • Ensuring that diverse suppliers are included as a part of AAM’s strategic sourcing and procurement processes.
  • Communicating the value of AAM’s Diverse Supplier Network both internally and externally to all stakeholders.
  • Continuous improvement of AAM’s supplier diversity results to meet our own and our customers’ supplier diversity requirements.

Diverse suppliers are required to report diversity status at the time of onboarding with AAM and to maintain current diversity certificates within AAM’s iSupplier Portal (Supplier Lifecycle Management Module) in accordance with AAM’s Supplier Diversity Certification Requirements which are outlined during onboarding.

AAM is committed to building a qualified and competitive Supplier Diversity Network and strongly encourages its tiered suppliers to implement their own supplier diversity policies and sourcing strategies to reflect the diverse make-up of our ultimate customer base.
