Supplier Diversity Program

Program mission

Denver Water’s Supplier Diversity Program seeks to provide small businesses and businesses owned by minorities and women an opportunity to work for Denver Water as contractors, subcontractors and suppliers.

In selecting suppliers, contractors and subcontractors, Denver Water actively works to cultivate an environment that provides opportunities as well as transparency and advocacy for small, minority and women-owned businesses.
