Economic inclusion is an important element of Aon’s overall commitment to building a more equitable, sustainable and resilient firm. Aon Diversity Solutions (ADS) empowers small and diverse-owned businesses to play a greater role within the global economy, supporting job creation, competitiveness, individual wealth and vibrancy in local communities.
We are committed to developing valuable relationships with businesses that are minority-owned, womanowned, LGBTQ-owned, veteran-owned, small, in historically underutilized business zones and owned by people who are disabled or differently abled. We also provide opportunities for suppliers that can offer quality, innovative, competitive and cost-effective products and services.
To confirm our commitment, we signed Aon’s Commitment Statement for Global Supplier Diversity in 2020, outlining expectations that guide procurement actions and contribute to growth through commercial impact. ADS’ Economic Inclusion strategies have also been embedded into Aon Client Value Creation and Client Service Delivery models.
ADS is led by global standards together with best and next practices across regions and solution lines to bring the best of Aon to every colleague and client so communities can thrive.
Through our integrated supplier and business diversity efforts, we have maintained 5 percent of U.S. addressable spend with diverse suppliers. We’ve focused on maintaining diverse spend despite disruptions such as the pandemic buying conditions of 2020 and 2021.
