About Supplier Diversity


What is the State Farm® Supplier Diversity Program?

The mission of Supplier Diversity at State Farm is to identify and encourage equal opportunities for businesses owned by minorities, women, and persons with disabilities to contribute to our overall goal of providing quality products and services to meet our customers' needs at competitive prices. At State Farm we track and report Tier 1 and Tier 2 spend with certified diverse suppliers to increase opportunities with MBEs and WBEs.
