Avion Systems has been actively involved in Supplier Diversity
Initiatives with our corporate clients and partners. We were an original
participant in the State of Georgia’s Mentor-Protégé Program. We had the good
fortune of participating in a similar Program with Southern Company. In 2008, we
completed our participation in the initial Diverse Supplier Development Program
implemented by Accenture.ure.
We have invested the time, energy, and resources as an expression of our
commitment to supplier diversity. It is an important part of what we do as a
company. It is just as important to our clients and partners. They understand
the value propositions that are imbedded in supplier diversity that include:
Hunger To Succeed
Higher Level Customer Care
What is most important is to deliver the highest quality for the lowest
reasonable cost. Our goal is to do that and, at the same time, consistently
exceed client expectations. When we do that, what emerges is a consensus that
diversity is the right thing to do.
