By identifying, developing, and collaborating with historically under-utilized suppliers, Dana Incorporated will accelerate innovation, advancing economic and technological development to anticipate customer demands throughout the diverse markets we serve.
Dana Incorporated (Dana) views supplier diversity as a leading business strategy, implemented to sustain its reputation as a technology and innovation leader in the global marketplace while promoting economic expansion in the communities our business impacts.
It is Dana’s policy to actively engage historically-underutilized groups such as third-party certification minority- and women-owned businesses in sourcing activities. This ensures that maximum opportunity to pursue providing products and services to Dana is extended within these groups while maintaining our standards of cost competitiveness, quality, and operational integrity.
Dana recognizes the economic gains that result from supplier diversity processes. By upholding sub-tier supplier diversity spend requirements, we strive to go beyond our customers’ expectations in this important area to multiply them throughout our supply base.
Dana understands that supplier diversity is an economically driven business strategy, implemented to strengthen the greater global community to better serve our customers and to sustain Dana’s position as a global technology leader.
Executive leadership at Dana will encourage company-wide participation in the pursuit and development of diverse suppliers.
