Are you working in corporate procurement and looking for a communications firm that also is a corporate diversity supplier?  If so, Landis Communications Inc. (LCI) can help.

LCI is an award-winning public relations, marketing, social media, and digital strategies firm:  and, we’re gay-owned.  We are proud accredited members of the National Gay & Lesbian Chamber of Commerce (NGLCC) and San Francisco’s Golden Gate Business Association, which advocates for LGBT-owned businesses.  LCI also is certified by the City of San Francisco as a local business enterprise (LBE).  As such, when corporations hire LCI, they are supporting the hiring of vendors that match the Federal definition of diversity supplier.

According to Wikipedia, “Supplier diversity is the proactive business process of sourcing products and services from previously under-used suppliers. This process helps to sustain and progressively transform a corporation’s supply chain thus quantitatively reflecting the demographics of the community in which it operates by recording transactions with diverse suppliers.”

“Corporate Supplier Diversity initiatives are business programs that encourage the use of minority-owned, women owned, veteran owned, LGBT-owned, service disabled veteran owned, historically underutilized business, and SBA defined small business vendors as suppliers. It is not directly correlated with supply chain diversification, although utilizing more vendors may enhance supply chain diversification.  Diverse- and women-owned business enterprises are among the fastest-growing segments of the U.S. economy. Diverse-owned businesses generate an estimated $495 billion in annual revenue and employ nearly 4 million workers.”

LCI is a certified San Francisco small business and certified LGBT owned.  Our listing can be found under Professional Services / Marketing & Advertising.  Our page is here.
