Our greatest assets are our employees, suppliers, and contractors.  We see diversity as a vital element to not only our company’s success, but also that of our entire team.  

Diversity and inclusion an integral part of who we are. We encourage, honor, and celebrate diversity in our workforce. We also welcome a variety of suppliers and strive to maintain a diverse list of companies who work with us. In fact, we have implemented a Supplier Diversity Program to better afford smaller organizations, and those run by women, minorities, and veterans the opportunity to supply us with essential products and services.

American Water Launches New 2nd Tier Reporting System To Support Improved Utilization Of Diverse Suppliers And Small Businesses

2018 - American Water Regulated Business Operations new, online, Supplier Diversity Management System is now live. The new system improves American Water's ability to monitor and audit the quantity of work performed by contractors and sub-contractors, and will help track how much of the company's current and future contracting goes to diverse suppliers. American Water is committed to increasing the total contract opportunities with Minority-, Women-, Veteran- and Disabled-owned (MWVD) businesses.

Powered by diversity management software company B2GNow, the new cloud-based system will improve American Water Regulated Business Operation's contractor management process, and its user friendly interface means that suppliers can spend more time and energy on their own operations, and less on reporting. The reporting system is FREE for suppliers.
