At ANN INC., we believe in supporting women and minority-owned businesses. We know that having suppliers that are representative of our customer base further strengthens our connection with our client and the communities in which we operate. Through the ANN INC. Supplier Diversity Initiative for Non-Merchandise Suppliers, we are able to foster inclusion and tap into a new pool of qualified, diverse suppliers who are competitively priced, quality-focused and innovative.
ANN INC. currently has a membership with Women’s Business Enterprise National Council (WBENC), the nation’s leading advocate of women-owned businesses as suppliers to America’s corporations.
ANN INC. will only accept supplier diversity certifications from the governing bodies of Women’s Business Enterprise National Council to be considered for inclusion within the ANN INC. Non-Merchandise Supplier Diversity Program. To learn more about becoming certified as a Woman Owned Business, go to www.wbenc.org/Certification/.

ANN INC. will search this database (powered by Ariba), prior to engaging in Request for Proposals. Woman Owned and Diverse Non-Merchandise Suppliers can provide their information by clicking here.
Please note that registering on the supplier database does not guarantee inclusion in new business proposals or an award of business.
