It's All About Inclusion and Diversity

Monsanto’s supplier diversity program creates opportunity for businesses to be owned by minorities, women, people with disabilities, veterans, disabled veterans, service-disabled veterans, and lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) to provide products and services to Monsanto.

  • African American/Black
  • Asian
  • Hispanic/Latino
  • Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer, Intersex, and Asexual
