Supplier Diversity

At AMC Networks, we are committed to supplier diversity and advancing the social and economic inclusion of businesses owned by historically excluded and underrepresented groups — including women, minorities, veterans, people with disabilities, and the LGBTQ+ community. This promotes opportunities for diverse ideas and innovative solutions that strengthen our organization and the stories we tell, the suppliers we work with, and the communities where we live and operate.

We use best practices in supplier diversity to identify and work with businesses that are at least 51% owned, operated and controlled by one or more of the following:

  • Minority Business Enterprise (MBE)
  • Women Business Enterprise (WBE)
  • Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer Enterprises (LGBTQ+)
  • Veteran Owned Business (VBE)
  • Service Disabled Veterans (SDV)
  • Disability-Owned Business Enterprise (DOBE)

Interested in becoming a Supplier?
