About Us

The Council for Supplier Diversity (originally named the Greater San Diego Business Development Council) established in 1999, is a 501 (c) 3 nonprofit organization whose objective is to bring corporations and diverse business enterprises (DBEs) to leverage supplier diversity for economic empowerment in diverse communities. Historically, the Council served as an economic advocate for the minority business segment of the larger community of diverse business enterprises. Today the Council for Supplier Diversity (CSD) represents the corporate outreach to the broad range of Diverse Business Enterprises. This includes minority, woman and service disabled veteran owned businesses. Headquartered in San Diego, California, the Council has developed a reputation as an innovative leader in supplier diversity support and economic development strategy for diverse populations.



What's New At Council!


Last year brought significant change and challenge for our Council. Out of great challenges come potential new opportunities. The 2013 changes are no exception.

In 2014 we begin a new and exciting transformation; we are committed to expanding the strategic value we have always and will continue to provide for our member corporations and the minority, women and service disabled veteran businesses in our region. We have aggressive plans to deliver exciting programs out of our state-of-the-art Business and Conference Center,  programs designed to assist our members and supplier in achieving their goals. Here at the Council for Supplier Diversity we are committed to the highest level of client service.
