Supplier Diversity

Fred Hutchinson Cancer Center's supplier diversity effort intends to create an inclusive supply chain supporting our mission, facilitating scientific innovation and developing a supplier base that reflects the study participants, patients and communities we support.

Diversity is a core commitment at Fred Hutch integral to our lifesaving work. Our values are grounded in and expressed through the principles of diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI). This extends to the suppliers we partner with and our goal is that an opportunity exists for every supplier who supports our mission.

Dr. Tom Lynch

“The mission of Fred Hutch is to eliminate cancer and infectious disease for all people in all communities. Our choice of vendors is a critical lever in ensuring that the Fred Hutch community of care providers, scientists and suppliers matches the diversity of the community we serve.”

— Thomas J. Lynch Jr., MD, President and Director, Fred Hutch
