Supplier Diversity is a
Fundamental Business Strategy
"Minority-owned and woman-owned businesses are a highly dynamic sector of the U.S. economy, growing jobs and revenues more quickly than the economic average. There are more than 12 million such firms in the United States, and this group includes many valuable partners in our Johnson & Johnson Supplier Diversity Program.
By purchasing goods and services from these businesses, we are directly contributing to the creation of jobs in local communities and strengthening ties to the consumers, patients and doctors who benefit from our products and services." 2/2010 Executive Committee Supplier Diversity Endorsement Letter – Dominic Caruso , J&J VP Finance and CFO and Mark Guinan , CPO

This means that each partner accepts some responsibility for the other's success.
