“Gilead is committed to working with suppliers that share our values related to social, economic and environmental impact.
We strive to create a supplier base that reflects the patients, customers and communities we serve. We believe supplier inclusion and diversity is a strategic business imperative that generates a competitive advantage, increases access to innovation, enables greater agility in our supply chain and drives socio-economic inclusion into the broader society.
To make this belief a reality, we intentionally seek out diverse suppliers and small businesses including (but not limited to) partnering with several organizations – from local to international – that share our goals. Through these partnerships and multiple supplier inclusion programs, we create a more equitable future for all.”

The purpose of the Supplier Diversity Program (SDP), formerly known as the Small and Disadvantaged Business Utilization (SDBU) Program, is to provide advocacy for and direction to small businesses and historically underutilized small businesses (HUSBs).

The Institution’s policy is to provide small, minority, socially and economically disadvantaged 8(a) women-owned, historically underutilized business zone (HUBZone) and service-disabled veteran-owned businesses—referred to collectively as small and disadvantaged businesses—the opportunity to participate, to the maximum extent possible, in all federal contracts entered into by the Institution. When appropriate, the Smithsonian also expends trust funds based on these principles.
